Your favourite community festival is back for 2024!

Ballan Autumn Festival is an annual celebration of local culture, creativity and community, and is one of the oldest regional country fairs in the Moorabool Shire.

And with around 10,000 people flocking to the festival each year, it’s also one of the most popular.

Don’t miss the Grand Parade, and gaze upon an amazing selection of beautiful vintage cars. Browse over 100 market stalls and put together a feast from their huge array of food trucks, gathered in their new seated and shaded dining precinct.

And music? 2024 brings the big Moorabool Wind Farm Stage, featuring an incredible selection of music with youthful folksters The Gordon Gypsies, Brassy festival vibes from the Ballan Community Street Band, silky smooth swing from The Martini Set, and the big and beautiful sound of African Star Dance and Drumming Company.

Throw in the Festival’s traditional favourites like the Animal Nursery, Wood Chop, Devonshire Tea and lots of stuff for the kids, and you’ve got a cracking day out for the whole family.

Full program out soon! Visit the website, or follow them on Facebook or Instagram for all the latest news.

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
