Tarra Festival 2020

Yarram & Port Albert
For a population of only 5,100, the Tarra Festival attracts 10,000+ people to the Street parade on Saturday and 18,000+ to events in total.
The Tarra Festival is a major fundraising vehicle for community groups in the area.
Not just a Street Parade | Over 50 events
From Horses & Carriages to Tanks, from Penny Farthings to Vintage Cars, School Floats, Clowns, bands & biplanes, you'll find the whole of the local area and what it loves represented at the parade. The whole of the main street is packed with people and the procession takes up to an hour.
The Tarra Festival is not only the home of the popular "Rotary Art Show" but it also features exhibitions from a range of local galleries, the Historical Society, Family History & Genealogy Groups.
The Tarra Festival features the Yarram Market in the main street on Saturday morning, the Sunday market at Port Albert and the massive Monday Monster Market at the Yarram Showgrounds.
After the Street Parade, people move to the Recreation Reserve for whole range of fun family activities hosted by the Lions Club. Petting Zoos, Pony Rides, Rides, Tug-o-war, bouncing castles, Monster Easter Egg Hunt and more. A great time for the family.
Sports of all Kinds
Football & Netball Games, Golf, Tennis & Bowls Tournaments, Come & Try Yachting and heaps of other sporting activities over the entire festival.
Vintage Cars & Trucks not only feature in the Tarra Festival parade but also in other events over the Easter weekend.
Really Living Expo
At Rutter Park on Easter Sunday, the Really Living Expo focuses on sustainability, natural therapies and enjoying life in harmony with the environment. There are stalls, practitioners, workshops, talks, concerts and great food.
Pancakes in the Park
A mainstay of the Tarra Festival on Sunday morning is Pancakes in the Park, run by the Red Cross. A great opportunity to tuck into Pancakes or Bacon & Eggs before you head off to church or to other Tarra Festival events.
On Saturday afternoon at the Recreation Reserve you can participate in Interactive Demonstrations by a range of local community groups such as CFA, SES, Historical Society, Mens Shed, Family History & Genealogy, Dancing groups etc
Each year the Wellington Shire Library hosts a free reading and talk with a leading author, accompanied by free nibbles.
Face Painting, Balloons etc
