Look out for roving performers throughout the day to keep kids entertained, plus face painting for the kids and the kid at heart. Mr Dash will be skipping, jumping, juggling and cruising around on his one wheel wonder from 11.30am to 1.30pm. Watch out for Polly Pop and her circus tricks. Circus Stilt Walkers will be creating magical moments that are interactive and entertaining while the Bubble Fairy will be blowing giant bubbles to enchant the kids. Perhaps the most exciting of all is The Greatest Magic Show on the main stage at 2.30pm.

The kids won't be bored at this music event with free games of bubble soccer on the oval, the CFA Firetruck to hop onto, meeting Captain Kola, making badges and enjoying cupcakes. There are also free horse and carriage rides outside the General Store for a trip around the main street. If snakes are more their thing, the Snake Hunter will be at the Panton Hill Primary School from 11am to 4pm. Meanwhile, adults will have lots to check out at the Makers Market on 18 Bishops Rd from 11am to 4pm.


Andrew Kelso plays MC on the main stage while the future stars from the U16s Music Competition will be lighting up the stage from 12.15pm. Panton Hill Primary Choir will also show off their musical talents from 11.45am onwards. From 1pm onwards you have the main lineup with Indie folk singer songwriter James Mark kicking off first, followed by Amie Grisold who just released her new album Making Sense Of It All. Siren brings great vibes with their 2 piece feisty pop and indie folk music, while Suneden brings a mix of soul, funk and blues. Disgruntled Architect jumps in next with their intriguing music that's very danceable to and Nicky Bomba Trio kill it with positive vibes, flying by the seat of his pants.

For your eating pleasure there's plenty around with the Market in place selling Kinglake Proteas, hair braiding and a Naturopath (follow the link & book in advance) on site. The Panton Hill Pre-School fundraiser will have a sizzling BBQ going, and the General Store will join the crew with their curries, samosas and chips. Food Vans include Daveys Baked Potatoes, Chooh Lala, Ink-redible Calamari, TwistytTaters, Twista Sis Pofferjas, Turkish Gozlemes, Woodfired Pizza Van and an Ice Cream Van amongst others and of course a Bar for the adults.

As you can see, there's a lot going on at this Festival, including Radio On The Hill, the local 88.6 Plenty Valley FM community station. They've have live feeds from the Festival and give you a chance to record your voice for the radio. This year they will also have a promotional stall for you to find out more about the station & meet the musicians.

Take a Mystery Walk on the Hill to a secret destination with Brad Tadday and discover an Indigenous food fibre and a medicine garden in the nearby Bunjil reserve. There'll be a cultural talk and activities with Wurundjeri elder Judy Nicholson & James McFadyen where you can use Burgan sticks to craft clap sticks, digging sticks or help build a shelter. The walk will depart from the community hall. See timetable on the day for times.
