The East Gippsland Winter Festival kicks off this Saturday, and there is plenty going on across the region for everyone.
The festival spans the full width and breadth of East Gippsland, with a focus on key towns and villages to maximise local engagement and participation, including Orbost, Bemm River, Marlo, Mallacoota and Buchan.
Featuring an array of more than 80 spectacular events happening right across the East Gippsland region, the festival program is available now on the East Gippsland Winter Festival website.
Bookings for ticketed events can also be made via the website, and festival-goers are being urged to book early, as many of these events have limited capacity, and expected to sell out quickly.
Running from June 17 to July 10 – and coinciding with the Winter Solstice and Victorian school holidays – the East Gippsland Winter Festival includes a feature-packed schedule of regional art displays and performances, live music, dining experiences, light shows, multimedia events and more.
