Council releases spring/summer events guide

31 July 2019

The Spring/Summer edition of the Greater Hamilton Events Guide is now available, detailing over 90 events taking place in the region between September 2019 and February 2020. From music festivals and country shows to art exhibitions, world-class performances and sporting fixtures, visitors and locals alike are in for an action-packed Spring and Summer in the Greater Hamilton region.

There are a number of new events taking place this season, including the Fulham Homestead Open Garden in October and Christmas on the train - a family Christmas picnic at the Hamilton model railway.

Share in our region’s unique experiences, from sheep shearing, wood-chopping and sheepdog competitions at our five Country Shows, to enjoying local wines and live music at the returning Koonara Wines Food & Wine Fiesta or at Pierrepoint Cellar Door.

Hearts will be racing track-side at this season’s five horseracing meetings at the Hamilton Harness Racing Track and at Coleraine’s iconic Australian Pedal Car Grand Prix. Keeping the kids entertained is made easy at fun events like North Hamilton Kindergarten’s muddy NHK Obstacle Race and Tarrington’s German Laternenfest, celebrating its 25th Anniversary in 2019.

Feel the Christmas spirit at Street Parades in Coleraine and Hamilton, join in singing Carols by Candlelight in the Botanic Gardens and see in the New Year at the NYE Street Party and Fireworks.

The guide also outlines 18 events and exhibitions being held throughout Spring and Summer at the Hamilton Performing Arts Centre and Hamilton Gallery.

The Spring/Summer Events Guide can be downloaded from, Council’s website or via the @visitgreaterhamilton Facebook page. You can also pick up a hard copy from the Hamilton and Dunkeld Visitor Information Centres, from all Council offices or it can be mailed on request by contacting free call 1800 807 056.
