Barossa Vintage Festival
Wednesday 19 - Sunday 23 April 2017
The Barossa Vintage Festival has a longstanding history as a celebration of vintage, dating back to 1947 when the Barossa community got together to celebrate the end of grape harvest and vintage.
The festival is acknowledged as the largest and longest running wine tourism event in Australia. With previous Barossa Vintage Festivals having attracted over 55,000 people it is also South Australia’s largest regional festival.
The Barossa Vintage Festival has always been a celebration ‘by Barossans for Barossans’ to which we have now invited the rest of the world to come and celebrate – engaging visitors in an immersive food and wine experience, against the back drop of Barossan history and heritage.
This year, the community Festival will feature over 90 events, showcasing arts, music, culture, community and the region’s highly celebrated food and wine, and kicks off on 19 April and runs for a full five days.
There’s the old favourites including the Parade, Ziegenmarkt, town days and the scarecrow trail, but 2017 will also see many new marquee events such as Feast Folk and Fossick, the Chook Shed Social Club, the Silver Raven Festival, and a 33km hill climbing trail run through Riesling country.
2017 will mark 70 years of the Barossa Vintage Festival and will be held from the 19 - 23 April.
