Drouin Ficifolia Festival 2018
Each year the Ficifolia Festival brings Drouin alive with colour, excitement and fun for everyone.
It is a week-long festival with events and attractions showcasing many of our community groups and businesses who freely give their time to lots of displays, competitions, and events.
The name 'Ficifolia' came about as it is Latin for Flowering Gum.
All of Drouin's Ficifolia trees which line both sides of Princes Way are Heritage Listed. The Baw Baw Shire tries its best to plant Ficifolia Trees where ever possible, however they are very difficult to keep alive their first twelve months as they cannot cope with frost.
The high point of the Festival is on the second Saturday in February with a vibrant Street Parade preceded by entertainment and children's activities. For the first time in the Festival's history the Street Parade will kick off at 5pm, and will be followed by musical entertainment in the Park, an Open-air Family Film, and finally a Fireworks Display wraps up the big day.
The many community groups and businesses that stage an event are eager to welcome new-comers and visitors to join in, meet new people, and make new friends. These events are all organised by volunteers who are passionate about their town.
So come along, enjoy your day and get to know Drouin.
The program for the Ficifolia Festival is held on the second weekend of February every year.
