Ballarat Heritage Festival

Bold art, artisan crafts and big beards – the Ballarat Heritage Festival is back better than ever. 

Originally a single-weekend affair, the 7-30 May festival is running for more than three weeks in 2021 for the first time in its history. 

This year’s event is set to be not only a celebration of the city’s rich history, but a chance for people to reconnect and celebrate being able to come together and experience what Ballarat is all about.
