6-22 March 2015 ‘Grown, Picked & Packed in Shepparton’ will serve up a multi-art form celebration offering the community a forum in which they can artistically and culturally express themselves celebrating all that is Shepparton.


Embracing the Festival tag line Unique Events in Unusual Places ‘Grown, Picked & Packed in Shepparton’ will transform known places into exciting festival spaces.


44 events across many public and private venues, free and ticketed, new events and familiar favourites and some known offerings repacked.


The Festival is committed in working to bring together emerging, established and community artists to stimulate dialogue and challenge audiences in accessible public environments.


We look forward to you joining us at one or many of the events across three weeks in March.
