Castlemaine State Festival
Victoria’s Premier Regional Arts Festival
The Castlemaine State Festival is a ten day multi-arts celebration that draws on the distinctive culture of the central Victorian goldfields region – of old and new, of the artistic and the agricultural, and its dynamic community strengths. Held in autumn every two years, the festival showcases works from the region’s finest artists and performing arts companies, alongside national and international artists.
Audiences in excess of 40,000 add to the vibrant spirit of the festival, getting involved in the productions and exhibitions across the visual arts, dance, circus, music, theatre, hot-rod culture, literature and a dedicated program for young people. Set amongst the unique central Victorian landscape, venues include historic churches and theatres, mines and quarries, public and private gardens.
