The state government has announced $30,000 in funding to help deliver the town’s inaugural Winter Arts Fest this coming June.
The event, an initiative of the Borough of Queenscliff’s Tourism and Economic Development Advisory Committee (TEDAC), will showcase artists, musicians, performers and local food an wine to “create an indulgent festival of soul-warming entertainment and experiences.”
Illuminated sculptures and light projections linking with the towns’ significant historical and maritime pasts will be also a key feature of the programs.
“The Winter Arts Fest is a great chance for the community to welcome visitors and enjoy a rich diversity of arts and performance in regional Victoria,” said Bellarine MP Lisa Neville.
“We’re the events capital, and we want to stay that way. Our Regional Events Fund is helping grow our world-class calendar of events.”
The Borough has pledged close to $20,000 for the event.
