For more than 15 years, the Woodend Winter Arts Festival has brought together acclaimed Australian and international talent with the music, literary and arts community of the stunning Macedon Ranges over the June long weekend. The result is a world-class showcase of vibrant, traditional and thought-provoking performances and events in the heart of one of Victoria’s best food and wine regions.
The Festival now attracts more than 5000 visitors to the Macedon Ranges, and has grown to a program of more than 30 events over the long weekend. The Program covers classical music, jazz or world music, literary events and visual arts, a program for young people and children and a series of free community events to ensure that it remains accessible to everyone.
Keeping up with the Woodend Winter Arts, the Holgate team have strung together a line-up of local artists to play acoustic gigs throughout the weekend to accompany the many hand crafted beers pouring over the weekend.
