This summer sees the return of the Ballarat Beer Festival as we showcase over two hundred of the world’s finest craft beers. Come along, kick back under Ballarat’s summery skies as you sample, sip and savour your way to craft beervana.

This year there will be fun aplenty as we raise the stakes on entertainment. We promise a few surprising activities for kids and adults alike. Stay tuned for future announcements.

Educate yourself as you learn the fine art of matching your favourite beer with food and learn the brewing process.

Not big on the beer? Not to worry. Local wineries are presenting visitors with carefully selected wines for tasting. Naturally, a range of tasty non-alcohol drinks will be available.

A cavalcade of food trucks with global cuisines will offer the opportunity to fuel up and discover new exciting flavours and dishes.

No festival is complete without music. That’s why we’ve invited a line-up of independent artists to play throughout the day, providing the perfect soundtrack to your day.
