Heading into its 19th year the 2015 Festival theme ‘Grown, Picked & Packed’ will celebrate all that is Shepparton.


Grown, Picked & Packed’ celebrates the town and the region, provides connections to the geographic environment and landscape, engages the industries and services and celebrates the people and communities that live, work and play in the area. It “Gives voice to our community”


Festivals are about celebration, the gathering of people to in arts, culture, food, sports and community. Embracing the Festival tag line Unique Events in Unusual Places the 2015 Shepparton Festival will transform known places into exciting festival spaces.


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