Celebrate the arts, discover the renowned foodie scene, and delve into the vibrant local culture at festivals and events all across the Daylesford and the Macedon Ranges region.

Tempt the palate

Pop corks and tuck into regional delicacies with like-minded visitors and locals at any one of the many foodie events. Choose from village harvest festivals, night markets and tastings or attend larger gatherings like the Taste of Kyneton, Hepburn Springs Swiss Italian Festa or the Macedon Ranges Wine & Food Festival. 

Stories and songs

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.

Whether you're visiting in summer, autumn, winter or spring, you're sure to find something to get excited about.
