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.

In 2017, the Ballarat Town Crier, Mr Hedley Thomson exercised his golden vocal chords to launch SpringFest 2017, and by late morning, the entire surrounds of Lake Wendouree were packed with people.

With almost 500 market stalls spread right around the Lake, together with numerous activities and special events, the good people of Ballarat helped SpringFest turn on its magic once again.

Every dollar raised from the 2017 Ballarat SpringFest has been 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. This funding allows these worthy organisations to continue to provide their most valuable services to the community.

Major sponsors including, RACV Goldfields Resort helped the Childrens’ Wunderfest turn on the fun, and Petstock, ensured children of all ages loved the baby animals and the beautiful unicorn brought an element of magic to the day.

Planning is well underway for the 2018 Ballarat SpringFest events. Our aim is to make it bigger and better than ever.

Mark the date in you diary….. SUNDAY 25th NOVEMBER 2018, see you there.

Proceeds raised from previous SpringFest Season of Events have supported a range of local community groups an organisations and has distributed in excess of $500,000 for the benefit of the community for the past 15 years.  In addition, numerous community groups use SpringFest each year to raise funds and support their projects locally.
