Art Show Info

As a smaller works exhibition, the Harcourt Applefest Art Show is intimate and distinctive.

The exhibition of high-quality original works has become a central part of the festival. With awards and acclaim to be won, the Show has a history of impressive entries and esteemed exhibitors.

The grand opening and awards night will be held on Thursday 8 March 2018, from 7.30 pm at ANA Hall, Harcourt. Art works will remain on display for Applefest-celebrations and throughout the Labour Day long weekend.

2018 Theme

The La Larr Ba Gauwa Harcourt Mountain Bike Trails are an exciting new local development that opens to the public in early 2018. The name, derived from the Dja Dja Wurrung, means ‘stones and mountain’.
