Australia's oldest continuous running cultural festival, the Bendigo Tafe Bendigo Easter Festival provides entertainment to everyone, regardless of their age!
This year's event will run from Good Friday to Easter Monday (Friday 30th of March to Monday 2nd of April, 2018) and offers a stellar program of fun-filled events, activities and entertainment for the whole family to enjoy.
Originally the Bendigo Easter Fair, as it was known then, was held in 1871 by Messrs to raise much-needed funds for the Sandhurst Benevolent Asylum and Hospital, raising over £1000 for this charitable cause. It has since evolved into an annual tradition which showcases Bendigo's diverse community and cultural heritage!
Over 4 jam-packed days, Bendigo's CBD will come alive with activities and events within walking distance of each other.
Be in the hunt for Easter eggs and enjoy loads of fun family-friendly activities and great entertainment at Rosalind Park.
Dance, drums, Lion Teams and 100,000 crackers are all part of the Chinese Spring Festival and the Awakening of the Dragon as Bendigo celebrates its Chinese heritage on Saturday on the Dai Gum San Precinct.
As the sun sets, find your place along the road to cheer on the convoy of illuminated floats in the Laser Electrical Torchlight Lantern Procession, concluding with a spectacular fireworks display over the city.
Join thousands as the line the streets on Easter Sunday to watch the gorgeous display of colour in the Bendigo Advertiser Gala Parade. Experience the excitement as Sun Loong, the world's longest Imperial Chinese Dragon, weaves his way through the historic streetscapes of Bendigo.
