The Kyneton Daffodil and Arts Festival is unique; a premier central Victorian Spring celebration, with its symbolic daffodils heralding new growth and sunshine across the region and the state.
For the first two weeks in September the festival involves the whole community and many visitors from all over Victoria in an exciting array of arts, crafts, gardens, flower shows, markets and hospitality.
As well as the beautiful daffodils that saturate the town and its surrounds, attractions include the Festival of One Act Plays, the Antique Fair, ferret racing, buskers and scarecrows, a Command Performance concert featuring many local and renowned artists and other recitals and literary events.
Many local gardens will be open to garden lovers and the flower show presents a variety of stunning daffodils, the signature of the festival.
The Festival joyfully reflects the town's and district's unique character. The Daffodil Old Time Ball attracts dancers from near and far.
Exhibitions at local galleries and venues display the work of local artists who share their skills with art lovers. Visitors can take in the Kyneton Art Group's annual show, the Indigenous Art Exhibition and make their own judgement on the entries to the Daffodil Art Prize, Art Photography Prize and the Youth Art Awards.
