* Castlemaine State Festival 2019 *
The biennial Castlemaine State Festival will be held from March 22 until March 31, 2019. We are very excited about the quality and the diversity of artists programmed this year and quality and diversity of the local creativity that will be on show in our Open Studios. For many years, the support of Regional Victoria has been an important element of the success of the Festival. Once again, we are inviting a continuation of that support. We are looking to you, as arts and culture leaders in the regions, to promote the festival in any ways you see to be appropriate.
