Castlemaine State Festival

A biennial festival that offers an extensive and colourful arts and culture program including music, theatre, dance, visual arts, and literature. There are various free events, a range of arts workshops, and specific youth and family events.

The Festival is well known for the quality of its program across the ten days. Performances cover many genres and include local, national, and international artists. This is a festival during which many local, skilled artisans open their studios to the public. Pick up a program and go for a wander or drive to visit studios and exhibitions dotted in and around the historic town of Castlemaine.

Historic venues provide interesting backdrops for national and international performers during the festival and include intimate theatres, goldrush churches, Castlemaine Town Hall, the Old Castlemaine Gaol, Castlemaine Market Building and Carman's Tunnel in Maldon.

If you have never experienced Castlemaine State Festival, then take some time to read a snapshot of each event on the website, which is divided into interest sections. There is so much to see and do across the ten-day festival. Tickets for some workshops, events and performances will sell out quickly, so make sure you select your favourites and book early.

Further information is available on the official website, Facebook, and Twitter.

Tickets can be purchased online through the Festival Box Office.
