Inaugural festival a celebration of Carnamah
Carnamah is gearing up to host its first annual Harvest Festival this weekend.
The event is a celebration of all things Carnamah, with a wide range of activities and attractions for all ages held across Friday and Saturday.
The festivities kick off at 6pm on Friday with the free Under the Stars event at the historic Macpherson Homestead. Attendees will enjoy world-class stargazing while listening to Aboriginal astronomy stories set to a backing track of live local music and opera.
The event will also celebrate the launch of the North Midlands Stargazing Group. Bring your own picnic or buy dinner on site.
Saturday will see Macpherson Street closed off and the festival will begin in earnest at noon.
Among the attractions will be live music and a vintage car and tractor show.
Markets will showcase local homemade preserves, arts, crafts, jewellery, books, artwork, antiques, vintage clothing and more.
A free exhibition at the Bank Gallery Space will display a collection of paintings by Di Taylor of local bushranger Frank Thomas.
The Carnamah Harvest Festival is co-ordinated by the North Midlands Project, the North Midlands Agricultural Society and the Carnamah Historic Society and Museum.
