The Kyneton Daffodil and Arts Festival welcomes spring in Kyneton with an exciting series of activities including visual and performing arts, crafts, gardens, flower shows, markets and hospitality.
Along with beautiful daffodils throughout the town and surrounding countryside, visitors can take in art exhibitions, performances, ferret racing, the Kyneton Dog Dash and Scarecrow Competition. Many local gardens are open to visitors and the Spring Flower Show presents the signature blooms of the Festival. The Festival of One Act Plays, now in its 63rd year, brings performers from throughout Victoria. Dancing, music and book events add to the eleven days of festivities. The Grand Parade on the last day of the Festival features bands, dancers, floats, cars and vintage vehicles. The Festival closes with a fair, performances, activities in Kyneton's main streets and an after-party at Major Tom's on Piper Street.
The Festival is held on the traditional lands of the Taungurung, Dja Dja Wurrung and Wurundjeri people. We acknowledge them as traditional custodians of this beautiful region. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging and to the Elders from other communities who may be with us at this time.
