Beechworth Golden Horseshoes Festival 2019
The iconic Beechworth Golden Horseshoes Festival, which will once again be celebrated over the 2019 Easter long weekend, is getting ever more entertaining & exciting! Harking back to golden beginnings, this year's festival celebrates the gold rush that provided the riches so abundantly on display in the beauty & history that is Beechworth, and invites you to come join the fun.
We look forward to seeing you here and encourage you to discover everything this immensely popular festival & town have to offer.
The Festival commemorates the 1885 legend of Daniel Cameron who during the gold rush famously led a parade through the streets of Beechworth on a horse shod with shoes of real gold. Cameron, a political aspirant to the Victorian Legislative Assembly, proved a hit with the locals who duly elected him to the State's first parliament.
As happens each Easter Saturday, the legend is re-enacted with a ceremonial shoeing of a horse with golden shoes, and a Grand Parade led by a rider in the guise of Daniel Cameron.
But wait, there's plenty more! There'll also be Arts & Crafts/Flea markets as well as Makers Market stalls dotted throughout the festival precinct, live music across two stages, roaming street entertainment, circus arts, Show & Shine, a petting zoo and LOTS MORE.
This not-to-be-missed event is enjoyed by thousands of visitors every year, celebrating the history, music and fun that's the Beechworth Golden Horseshoes Festival.
