Showcasing prosperity and diversity
THE sub-alpine valley township of Myrtleford in North East Victoria will come to life once again when the community celebrates the 56th Myrtleford Festival to be held from Thursday, March 10 to Monday, March 14, 2016.
The iconic tobacco drying kilns of the past, farmland and the exquisite Mount Buffalo mountain range will greet you as you enter into the picturesque Ovens Valley, where the entire community will welcome you to join with them in five days of festival events with something for everyone; and the majority of events are free.
Every festival showcases the region’s agricultural prosperity and diversity, and other industries that support the community, acknowledging the role that the planting, growing and harvesting of a vast variety of crops play in its richness.
The town centre will be a buzz of action and fun on the Saturday as the main street is closed all day for the huge open air street market, parade and evening street party.
There will be entertainment by talented performers, amusement rides and activities for the kids, and a vast variety of market stalls complete with food court set in a relaxed, friendly community setting.
The 2016 Festival event will offer visitors a huge program of activities over the March Labour Day long weekend in addition to the main highlights, including cattle sales, historical, art, craft and photography exhibitions, helicopter joy flights, local and handmade Cotters market on Sunday and much, much more.
