Ballan Autumn Festival is back for #44

Celebrating its 44th year of spellbinding attractions, the Ballan Autumn Festival on Sunday March 17 is gearing up to be the most magical festival yet. Grab your Spell Book, shake your wand and watch the rabbits appear as entertainers, stall holders and the street parade conjure up enchanting events at Ballan’s Academy of Magic: the theme of the 44th Ballan Autumn Festival to be held in the Main Street of Ballan.

The Ballan Autumn Festival has gained a reputation as one of the best community festivals in rural Victoria. Be mesmerised at the street parade, see the CWA magic cake decorating and cutest pumpkin competition, and join the refectory-style Morning and Afternoon High Tea party in Ballan’s Mechanics Institute.

With over 100 quality market stalls, there’s plenty of opportunity to take home a magical treasure to remind you of the great day out at the Ballan Autumn Festival.

And while the grown ups are sampling the local products including street food and special grub from the hotels, the kids will love the roving and onstage magic shows and other all day entertainment. There are rides, a wood chop competition, a petting zoo and plus all the Festival favourites: pet show, vintage cars and tractor displays.

It really is a great family day out!!

The Ballan Autumn Festival goes down on Sunday March 17 – 9am to 4pm at Inglis Street Ballan; the IGA Carpark and the Mechanic’s Hall. Visit or on Facebook
