Out & About - Autumn 2023

Griffith set to entertain

Griffith will stage its annual Easter weekend party starting on Thursday April 6.

The Griffith Easter Party is designed to entertain the whole family and the long weekend will feature a range of activities and experiences. Organisers say there will be many favourite events from previous years scheduled to return and some new events coming to life in 2023.

The morning of Good Friday (April 7) is a good chance to burn some energy in the Bacchus on the Lake fun run
and walk. The Griffith Pioneer Park Museum ‘Action Day’ will also be on Good Friday. It will be full of fun activities for the kids, market stalls, vintage machinery, demonstrations and entertainment, along with the availability of food and beverages.

In the morning on Easter Saturday (April 8), you can get your shopping fi x at the Banna Avenue Sidewalk Sale. The main street of Griffith will be brimming with sales where you can pick up a bargain and support locals. The Children’s Easter Brunch, which is always popular with the kids, will be in CWA Park on Saturday morning. One of the most popular features on the Saturday afternoon is the Griffith Vintage Festival which will feature live music and an array of local wine and food to enjoy.

Returning to the program this year – also on the Saturday – is Blood, Sweat & Beers, Griffith’s first homebrew competition and independent craft beer festival. It is run by local business Grainmother Brewing Supplies in the Griffith Community Gardens and was a huge success in 2022.

Easter Sunday will be all about wonderful wine and food. At Piccolo Family Farm you can explore the producer and artisan market stalls, enjoy delicious coffee, sample incredible food and be entertained with live music. You can also catch a glimpse of their new Visitor Experience Centre and their cellar door. That’s just one example. You’ll actually be spoilt for choice over the weekend with a winery event or tasting experience at many of Griffith’s amazing cellar doors.

It is recommended that you book your tickets early to ensure you don’t miss out on attending these fantastic events. To find out more you can grab a copy of the Griffith Easter Party program from the Griffith Tourism Hub, head to griffitheasterparty.com.au or call 1800 681 141.
