Start: Sat 23rd June 2 p.m. | End: Sat 23rd June 11:45 p.m.

Light your creative fire at the fifth Village Winter Festival as the community of the Central Goldfields gathers to celebrate the Winter solstice in spectacular style. Part carnival, part village fair and part arts festival, The Village will feature theatre, music, dance, circus, installations and lots of interactive activities for both kids and grown ups.

The Fire Spectacular will breathe pyrotechnics into the cool, crisp air at 7pm. Much more than fireworks, this multi-dimensional show is a community phenomenon on a grand scale. Plus The Famous Village Dog Show, World Kitchen and music from the likes of Kavisha Mazzella (folk), Blunderbuss (brass) La Descarga (Latin) and Coastbusters (surf).
