GOLDFIELDS FESTIVAL
Newstead

Start: Fri 9th March | End: Mon 12th March

The Goldfields Festival will kick off on Friday 9th with the opening and dedication, followed by a night of local Blues and Roots in the Community Hall.

Saturday 10th - The Racecourse with a Free Family Day, with young performers from the Goldfields area performing. Celebrations are set to become livelier from mid-afternoon with rockier bands with acoustic acts playing in the changeover breaks.

In the Community Hall, the eatery will be serving African cuisine all day, with acoustic acts.

Sunday 11th will be a day of vibrant local bands and a night of contemporary Celt and Folk music at the Racecourse. The food and more laid-back music will continue all day and most of the night at the Community Hall.

Labour Day itself will be an all-age open stage fun jam session from noon onwards. Bands, artistes, and entertainers from the Goldfields area will be able to pitch up and have a go on the stages. The day will cost $10 entry (except for those who have bought tickets for the whole event), and all proceeds will go to a local charity (yet to be announced).

Throughout the festival, the Racecourse will feature local produce stalls, traditional and international food stalls together with Arts and Craft stalls, local buskers, acoustic music tents featuring young up and coming singer/songwriters from the area, and much more
