The Victorian Gnome and Fairy Festival 2019
Following the success of our first Gnome Festival on Australia Day, 2013, the event was re-titled as “The Gnome and Fairy Festival” in 2014 and held each year since then on a date in February or March that avoids other local community events and fits in with the school year.
The 2018 Gnome and Fairy Festival was held on Sunday 18 March last. Unfortunately after many weeks of fine and hot weather, conditions deteriorated very rapidly during the morning. High winds and rain squalls made conditions very unpleasant and the event had to be abandoned around midday. Conditions became so bad that there were serious safety risks to people and livestock as well as damage to tents and other equipment. Thank you to all exhibitors, volunteer helpers and visitors who braved the elements on the day.
The Festival will run again next year, the date being Sunday 17 March 2019. Gates will open at 10 am and conclude by 4 pm
The venue for the Festival will again be the George Woods Reserve, Governor Road, Mordialloc, next to the boat launching ramp to Mordialloc Creek. Melways Map Reference: 92 G 2.
The Festival plans to bring Fun to Families with a whole range of activities focusing particularly on children up to 10 years of age. However there will be activities to suit all ages.
The program for the day is similar to previous years. Further details and a festival flyer will be available on this website when planning is further advanced.
