Community spirit is alive and well in East Gippsland, every weekend you can find a bustling market, sporting event or festival.  Try your luck at a race meeting or rodeo, pick up fresh local produce at a farmer’s market, have a go in a fun run, listen to some music on a foreshore, see the latest farming tools at an agricultural show or learn how to dance. To find out what is happening near you, go to our Events Calendar for an easy-to-use calendar, which is regularly updated.


To support the many community groups and event organisers in our region we have developed a web page especially for you. Click here for more information to assist event organisers.
