Events & Tickets


We will update this link in 2023, ready for you to purchase festival tickets. 

Exhibition at TYTO Gallery

This is a free public event.

This exhibition presents stories and images from local community members collected over two decades, aptly named "Window in Time". Also featured is a series of video interviews under the 'Our town, our stories, our future'. The stories and interviews capture the cultural landscape of our district. The Regional Arts Development Fund funded both projects. 

The exhibition will run over the festival weekend and for the remainder of the month.
