THE BENALLA FESTIVAL 2018
The Benalla Festival is celebrated every November on the foreshore of Lake Benalla and around the Rural City.
The Festival is a celebration of the local lifestyle. All events are low or no cost. The program of fun and creativity aims to engage the community and visitors with street entertainment, music, theatre, art, dance, exhibitions, fireworks and more. Every event is a chance to celebrate our community spirit, create, consume and come together for two weekends of fun activities.
The 2018 Festival theme is Our Backyard…a celebration of special places and spaces.
