Save the Dates for the 2018 Festival - 5 & 6 May

First Weekend of May, 2018
Town Centre, Clunes VIC 3370

The annual Clunes Booktown Festival is back on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th May, 2018 with 18,000 people expected to join the most amazing whole town bookshop experience in Australia. 

Along with author talks, panel discussions and literary luncheons, festival-goers can discover the largest collection of rare, out-of-print and collectable books in Australia, go inside heritage buildings, listen to live music, watch street performers, take a horse and cart ride or sample local food and wine.


The Clunes Booktown Festival is all about celebrating books and the great conversations and big ideas that come from them. The Festival is turning the stereotype of rural towns on its head: from slow, dusty and dry to a hub of ideas and the arts.

Join the conversation during the first weekend of May in Clunes.
