BENALLA FESTIVAL 29 October - 6 November 2022

The Benalla Festival is a celebration of the Benalla Rural City’s lifestyle, its community, country living and community spirit. The Festival is a result of community collaboration to design events that celebrate and embrace all that is great about our region through art, music, dance, history, sport, family attractions, food/wine, exhibitions, and much more. The Festival, in different formats, has been running for over 50 years.

The 2022 Benalla Festival theme is:  Our Community, Our Future… a chance to reimagine, reconnect and celebrate.

This year, some elements of the Festival will be changed to accommodate any COVIDSafe event requirements. We look to these changes as an opportunity to reimagine how we connect with our community through celebration. We remain committed to a great Benalla Festival and celebrate new beginnings. The Festival program will highlight our rural communities with events across our townships during the first weekend from 29 to 30 October.  The second weekend will feature events in Benalla from Friday 4 to Sunday 6 November.

We’re taking Expressions of Interest from interested individuals, groups and organisations to run an event or activity as part of the Benalla Festival Program.  Click here for details
