About Springfest

A Season of Rotary Events

The Rotary Club of Ballarat is delighted to once again deliver our annual SpringFest Season of Events. This year’s SpringFest Market Sunday is scheduled for the 25th of November 2018.

This year all events will be held at Market Sunday, which span’s around six unbelievable kilometres, set up against the serene backdrop of Lake Wendouree.  There are almost 500 market stalls to browse, offering a wide range of food, art and craft, music, clothing, jewellery, plants and flowers, performers, car displays, events and activities to suit all interests.

Every dollar raised from the SpringFest market is donated back into the Ballarat community. The Rotary Club of Ballarat’s purpose in delivering SpringFest is to support the many deserving charitable groups in Ballarat who work with volunteers, just like Rotary.
