Program Now Live For 2019 Festival

First Weekend of May, 2019
46 Fraser Street, Clunes VIC 3370

The annual Clunes Booktown Festival is back on 4th and 5th May 2019 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.
