The Bendigo Easter Festival has been in existence since 1870, and is the oldest community festival in Australia that occurs at Easter each year and allows access for all.
The Festival is a premier annual regional event that continues to involve a vast array of community members and also attracts visitors to the region, and remains an authentic celebration of the City's built and natural cultural heritage elements.
The Bendigo Easter Fair Society was established in 1870 and conducted the first Bendigo Easter Fair in 1871. Since that time, the Society, with the able assistance of our loyal Sponsors, thousands of Volunteers, The City of Greater Bendigo and the members and committees of the Society have, without missing a year, continued to conduct Australia's oldest continuous running community festival. We are proud of it, we love it and we are committed to it's ongoing presence! We invite you to come and party. Be a part of history - JOIN US!
