Who We Are

The Shepparton Festival, now in its 24th year, has an exciting program for 2020. Titled EVOLVE, the festival runs over 17 days, from 13 to 29 March. Watch the Goulburn Valley unfold as it hosts over 60 events, showcasing more than 250 artists in 40 venues.

The program delivers a diverse range of events including visual arts, comedy, music, workshops, films, performances, feasts and a line-up of unique events you won’t want to miss. Whether you crave a taste of culture, want to experience unusual places, are keen to explore art through your senses or simply love time with friends and family, EVOLVE has something for you.

The Goulburn Valley has a thriving creative community, and with Shepparton as the arts epicentre, EVOLVE includes regional highlights from Toolamba to Dookie, Tatura to Murchison and many in between, showcasing all the region has to offer.

Our Sponsors

Every March for the past 24 years, the Shepparton Festival has brought the community together to celebrate our culture, history, art and region’s strengths.

The Shepparton Festival team are pleased to acknowledge our sponsors, partners, and the many volunteers. This festival is only made possible because of their generous support that makes the Shepparton Festival happen year after year.

Shepparton Festival program is cancelled

This morning, the Victorian Government declared a state of emergency effective 12 noon today. As a community organisation, we must act in our collective interest. As an event organiser, we must play a role in “flattening the curve” to reduce the impact of COVID-19 on our community and beyond. As an employer, we must ensure we protect staff and contractors. We have therefore decided to cancel this year’s Shepparton Festival program.

We are now working with our partners to manage the implications of this decision, and we are turning our minds to planning for alternative dates for the delivery of cancelled events.
