Warrnambool & District Easter Arts Festival is designed to be an inclusive and celebratory series of arts events including Sculpture, Painting, Literature, Music, Singing, Performance, Dance, PhotograficArt and Film
Festival events are held at various venues throughout March and April.
Although we were disappointed about the 2020 festival being cancelled, we can now say a strong foundation was laid to build on for the 2021 events . We are looking forward and have a real sense of anticipation and enthusiasm for a bigger and better Easter Arts Festival in 2021. We are also very excited to announce that we have commitment for Ken Stott & Hamilton Choir concert, Bindi Cole Chocka workshop, the Blokes Brekky, CRC singing, The Way of the Cross Walk, and Rosanna and Dave Palmer. Mercy Place is preparing a big art display themed "All in it Together" with all residents producing work to be included, some special displays by individual residents, We have the Narringal Baptist have plethora of events planned and many others have expressed interest in participating in the 2021 festival. We will endeavor to keep you up to date as more events are confirmed.
And some more great news as Warrnambool City Council and the Moyne Shire Council have both pledged significant funding for the 2021 festival.
Since the Easter Arts Festival is all about community involvement and reaching out, we would love to hear if there are any ideas or events that you would like to see included in our program. If you are aware of any local acts, artists or musicians that would complement our Festival theme, make sure to let us know. You can contact us by calling

Ragman & Luke's stories of hope is dramatically told by story teller Philip Liebelt. The event was originally for the Warrnambool & District Easter Arts Festival but because of the social distancing rule's brought about by the covid 19 virus. We decided to make a video and put it online for people to view.
Below are the winners of the painting competition at WADAS, the well known painter David Voigt came first followed by Shirley Lindsay and Judy Rauert. The competition was ably judged by Neil Benfell. If social distancing restrictions lift earlier it may be possible to view that wonderful Easter exhibition until late in June.
1st place David Voigt
2nd place Shirley Lindsay
3rd place Judy Rauert
