Village Winter Festival

Free – $15

Light your creative fire at the fifth Village Winter Festival as the community of the Central Goldfields gathers to celebrate the Winter solstice in spectacular style.

Fire, Acts, Art, Music

Whether you are into hot tunes or hot rods or something in between, there will be plenty to keep you entertained and involved.

Local artists take centre stage throughout the festival from the moment gates open at 2pm with local youngsters Flower Drum right through to the midnight wrap-up with the Oz Rock Sing-along. Plus a few superb morsels from beyond the region such as Colombian rhythms from La Descarga and surf-pop from CoastBusters.

The Fire Spectacular (starts 7pm) will breathe pyrotechnics into the cool, crisp air. Much more than fireworks, this multi-dimensional show is a community phenomenon on a grand scale. Anyone can contribute to this spectacle by contributing messages for the Solstice and by helping to build the boat effigy. Local pyrotechnics and special effects expert John Sanderson will paint the sky, choreographing colour to music.
