25 May 2019 TO 25 May 2019


As the sun goes down on Saturday, Ballarat will burn brightly during Ballarat Heritage Weekend. The streets, laneways and stories of this gorgeous city will be brought to life with fire pits, fire displays and entertainment.

The iconic and historic fire pit – a place where tales are told and stories are shared. Ballarat’s CBD will be peppered with a range of fire pits, barrels and installations as you wander around the beautiful streetscapes making for a unique Ballarat Heritage Weekend experience like never before.

Expert storytellers will be on hand to help provide a detailed account of the history and heritage of Ballarat, using fire as a medium for discussion. Share your own stories of Ballarat with other festival goers or sit back and be immersed in the experiences of others – and don’t miss the roving entertainment and flame cannons.
