Running from dawn to dusk in the historic township of Clunes in Regional Victoria. A two day festival full of author and artist talks, workshops and live entertainment for the whole family.

Discover the outdoor book bazaar with over a hundred stall holders and immerse yourself in Clunes from cover to cover. It’s worth the visit.

A huge thank you to the Authors, Artists, Bands, Book Sellers, Food Vendors, Clunes Residents, Local Traders, Community Groups and Staff & Volunteers for helping us make the 2024 Booktown Festival a success!
