Celebrating Alpine Life in the Valleys
The Bright Autumn Festival is a ten day celebration of the wonderful autumn colours and autumn produce of the valleys of Victoria’s Alpine High Country. Bright and the surrounding districts are blessed with the perfect climate for magnificent autumn colours.
This year it takes place from Friday April 24, 2020 to Sunday May 3rd 2020. The highlight is the Gala Weekend with a market, music in the streets and a grand parade on Saturday 2nd May 2020.
Other key events of the festival are the Wandi Nut Festival, the Open Gardens and the Autumn Art Exhibition at the Bright Art Galley.
We regret to advise that the 2020 Bright Autumn Festival including the Gala Day, Wandi Nut Festival and Flea Market have been cancelled based on government advice about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and large public gatherings and directives on non-essential travel.
We will be back in 2021 from Friday 23rd till Sunday 2nd May.
Please accept our sincere apologies, we are greatly disappointed but the safety of participants has always been our first priority.
About the Festival
The Bright Autumn Festival is a celebration of autumn and harvest in Victoria’s Alpine High Country. The festival was first held in 1962 making it one of the oldest continuous festivals in the country. At the time, Bright was known as a winter destination and the Autumn Festival was an effort to attract visitors at a quiet period.
The Bright Autumn Festival is an initiative of the Bright and District Chamber of Commerce and is entirely run by volunteers.
