Kyneton Daffodil and Arts Festival
2019 dates to be announced soon !
During September each year, Kyneton welcomes a flood of visitors, participants and supporters with a carefully crafted and diverse program of springtime themed events and activities.
Each year the program includes favorites such as the Grand Street Parade and Fair, Kyneton’s Festival of One Act Plays, the Antique and Vintage Fair, Ferret Racing, Buskers, Open Gardens, Scarecrow displays, the Spring Flower Show and the continuation of the recently added Kyneton Dog Dash.
The Daffodil Art Prize and the Art Photography Prize exhibition, as well as a host of local galleries and studios again opened their doors to display the work and practice of our diverse local artists. Our 46th Festival saw the introduction of the Daffodil Gala Dance, and dancers from far and wide enjoyed a night of excellent music and good fun. The Festival came to a conclusion amid a riot of colour and sound as the whole district participated in the Grand Street Parade and Fair featuring bands, dancers, performers, floats, vintage vehicles, activities and much more.
We thank all who joined us and supported us in making the 2018 Festival such a special event, and we look forward to another exciting Festival in 2019.
This 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 future and to the Elders from other communities who may be with us at this time.
