The festival will run from 12pm-7pm and will include family-friendly activities, entertainment, fireworks, plus plenty of snow.

This year, 80 tonnes of real snow will be brought in from Mt Buller, which makes it a great opportunity for children and adults alike to enjoy the snow without having to drive to the mountains.

Admission to the festival and snow play areas is free, plus there will be a range of free activities and entertainment. The will also be paid attractions, such as amusement rides ($2-$6), plus plenty of opportunities to purchase food, hot drinks and other items from the market stalls.
