The Goulburn Valley has a thriving creative community, and with Shepparton as the arts epicentre, UNIFY includes regional highlights from Tatura to Dookie and many in between, showcasing all the region has to offer.

This year the Shepparton Festival turns 25. To celebrate this incredible milestone the festival has launched an exciting Winter program kicking off on the long weekend in June. The 17-day program runs from 11 to 27 June 2021. Festival Chair, Kirsten Green says “25 years is an amazing achievement for a grass roots, community run festival. I am so very grateful to the community members who had the tenacity to start the Festival – and to those who have worked hard to ensure it has continued over the last 25 years.”
