2014 Birregurra Festival and Art Show

There’s sure to be something to appeal at the 2014 Birregurra Festival and Art Show –whether it’s chilling to the music, embracing artwork, browsing street stalls or tucking into the gourmet food and wine.
Main street transforms into a vibrant market place selling all sorts of goodies from handcrafts to organic produce and loads of garden plants and displays. Be tempted by the local produce in the gourmet food and wine section, which includes delicious cheeses, ice-cream and locally grown olives. The ever popular dog jump is on again but we are also showcasing dog obedience and will have lots more action to tempt your four-legged doggy friends.
There is plenty to entertain the children. Face painting is always a hit. Look out for the animal nursery, ride a camel or enjoy the carnival rides. A must for all youngsters will be a performance by Little Feet Music, this energetic children’s act will get your little one up dancing on Sunday morning.  By popular demand the garden hub will be back again, but with more plants on show, workshops and hands-on activities. Check out the classic cars and admire the work of clever district wood turners.
The Birregurra Art Show offers $6000 in prize money and an additional Irrewarra Sourdough Prize of $1000. Run in conjunction with the town’s vibrant community festival, the show, held in the Main Street Hall, attracts over 300 entries from artists throughout Victoria. This year’s judge will be a prominent Melbourne artist.
