This year's event includes old favourites like Kyneton's Festival of One Act Plays, the Antique and Vintage Fair, Ferret Racing, Buskers, Open Gardens, Scarecrow displays, the Spring Flower Show and another great race in the Kyneton Dog Dash.

It wouldn't be a country get together without a Gala Dance or the fabulous Grand Parade featuring bands, dancers, floats and vintage cars on the final day of the Festival, Sunday 9th September.

If you're keen to experience a little bit of country life and hospitality make sure you're in Kyneton for the 2018 Daffodil & Arts Festival.
