See international superstars at magical concerts at Hanging Rock and discover local talent at the Woodend Winter Arts Festival. Read up a storm at Clunes' famous Booktown Festival and descend on Daylesford for the ChillOut Festival, the largest Country Queer Pride event in the country.

Community gatherings

Kyneton brings history to life at the Lost Trades Fair in February and the Antique & Vintage Fair in September, while Trentham is the perfect place for kids and the young at heart during the annual SpudFest.

Race fans will not want to miss the iconic Hanging Rock Races, while those with an interest in sustainability can pick up tips and talk to the experts at Seymour's Alternative Farming Expo.
