The ever-popular Ballarat Tweed Ride and Ballarat Beard & Stache Competition will feature as part of next month’s bumper Ballarat Heritage Festival.
For the first time in the event’s history, it has this year been expanded to a 24-day festival of innovative displays, thought-provoking art, hands-on experiences and exciting installations.
Other highlights of the 7-30 May festival will include:
After the 2020 event was held online, this year’s Heritage Festival 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.
From beer school and Instagrammable public art installations to craft demonstrations and progressive lunches, 2021 sees the return of festival favourites as well as a series of new COVID-safe activations to discover.
“We know Ballarat is known for its rich heritage, but we are inviting people to delve a bit deeper and find out more about what makes our city special,” City of Ballarat Mayor Cr Daniel Moloney said.
“Stories of our history will be told through new immersive technologies, hands-on experiences, demonstrations and community programs.”
