Bendigo Easter Fair Society 150 Years

Bendigo Easter Fair Society is the Bendigo Easter Fair custodian.

The Bendigo Easter Fair Society is a not for profit organisation that has been involved in staging the Easter Festival since 1871; the longest, continuously running community festival in Australia. With the help of the City of Greater Bendigo and sponsors, this largely free event has been staged for the benefit of locals and visitors alike.

The Bendigo Easter Festival continues to showcase Bendigo’s diverse community through displays from the Bendigo Chinese Association and many other community groups who have contributed to it’s success. The Gala Parade and Torchlight Lantern Procession are integral to the festival and provide opportunities for the community to express artistic talent and demonstrate cultural diversity.

More details about the 150th Bendigo Easter Fair will be announced in the lead-up to 2021.
