Castlemaine State Festival

RACV Goldfields Resort

Cape Schanck golf course

The Castlemaine State Festival is a ten day extravaganza of art, music, film, culture and fun. The program is packed full of captivating events in some of Australia's finest Gold Rush era venues.

Set amongst the artist hamlet of Castlemaine and surrounds, a town of 7,000 swells to over 15,000 during peak festival time. Audiences congregate from across Victoria for one of Australia's longest running Arts Festivals, now in its 42 year, which makes it Victoria’s key regional arts festival.

The 2017’s festival will once again play host to over 50 international artists, flying in from around the globe and bringing with them a treasure trove of cinema, dance, visual, and performance art.

With over 400 participating artists and over 100 Australian, local and international acts performing during the festival, audiences have a real chance of mingling with the artists and experiencing creative culture at its finest.

Festival goers will no doubt enjoy the unique atmosphere of our Central Victorian community which comes together to celebrate this biennial ten-day multi-arts celebration.
