Clunes Booktown Festival Information
Event Dates: Saturday 30th of April 2016 to Sunday 1st of May 2016
Australia's only International Booktown hosts the Clunes Booktown Festival over the weekend of 30 April to 1 May, 2016.
The annual festival is approaching its tenth year and regularly attracts between 15,000 and 20,000 people who come for the opportunity to browse through thousands and thousands of books - rare, new, second hand and out of print across all genres.
What better way to celebrate books than to browse the more than 50 book shops and stalls that transform the township of Clunes each May.
The concentration of books - new, second-hand, collectable and out-of-print across all genres - surpasses any capital city in Australia. Nowhere else can you find so many book traders within a square kilometre than over the Festival weekend.
The writers' talks, the Children's Booktown precinct, Punch and Judy, face painting and the hay bale maze, street theatre, brass bands, wine and food complete the festival.
Look out for special offers closer to the festival when booking your weekend festival pass online.
If you missed the last festival, Clunes permanent booksellers offer great browsing throughout the year and there is also a year-round monthly writers' talks program, Sunday Selection. Full details on the website.
