Kyneton Daffodil and Arts Festival

5 to 15 September 2019

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.

This year's theme is 'Daffodil Dreaming'

Along with beautiful daffodils throughout the town and surrounding countryside, visitors can take in exhibitions, ferret racing, performances and the now established Kyneton Dog Dash; hilarious time trials for family pets large and small. Many local gardens 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 district is on display in the Grand Parade on the last day of the Festival with bands, dancers, floats, cars and vintage vehicles. Following the Parade the Festival closes with a fair, performances and activities in Kyneton's main streets.

All of Kyneton's legendary and award-winning culinary establishments will be ready to provide their famous hospitality.


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.
