For the music fans

Bendigo will be buzzing with Blues and Roots performances and workshops during the Bendigo Blues and Roots Music Festival (November 9 - 12). There will be more than 100 artists performing across more than 30 venues over four days, including the popular Blues Trams and very secretive Bendigo Beer Pop Up laneway parties.

Are you a massive fan of Australian rock? Jimmy Barnes, along with Jon Stevens, Richard Clapton, and Taxiride will be performing at Rocks in the Vines on November 4 at the stunning Sutton Grange winery. It’s going to be glorious!

For the healthy minds

What if I told you there is a festival which is animal friendly and promotes healthy lifestyle and diet? Plus yoga and food demonstrations are on the table. Vegecarien Festival on October 7 is a food festival with a difference and I promise you will love it. 

Are you looking for a challenge? Want to experience Bendigo’s grand heritage streetscapes by foot? Whatever reason we can help! The Bendigo Bank Fun Run (November 5) is a great event which raises money for the local hospital and is the one you should lock in this Spring.
