BEF 2019 stage and crowd

Commencing in 1871, the Bendigo Easter Fair is one of Australia’s longest running community events, which was due to celebrate its 150th anniversary in 2020. Unfortunately, due COVID19, the 2020 event was cancelled and a smaller alternative event was held in 2021.

Pre-COVID19, the Easter long weekend in Bendigo has traditionally seen Rosalind Park and surrounding streets become a bustling hive of family friendly entertainment.

Filled with a broad program of stage shows, kids activities, carnival rides, live music, the Rotary Art and Craft market, Vision Australia’s Easter egg hunt, traditional Chinese performances and more. 

The Bendigo Easter Fair culminated with the spectacular gala parade, featuring Bendigo’s newest dragon; Dai Gum Loong.

We all love and miss Easter in Bendigo! Planning is now underway for the 150th Bendigo Easter Fair in 2022, and we look forward to celebrating with you.
