Wyndham cultural diversity portfolio holder, Cr Henry Barlow said the event was to celebrate women and welcomed men and children to join in the fun.
“This year the theme of International Women’s Day is, ‘an equal world is an enabled world’, where we look at gender equality and how it benefits us all,” Cr Barlow said.
“As we enjoy the entertainment by these high-profile stars, we can take time to reflect on women’s achievements and the importance of women in our society.
“Just bring along your deckchairs and picnic blanket and enjoy the evening of entertainment at Point Cook Pop Up Park.”
The event will also mark the launch of a new community publication Windmill Journal, celebrating local women’s writing.
The event, at Murnong Street, Point Cook, will be held between 5- 9pm.
