Sound the alarm, because the Shepparton Festival has moved into its comfort zone, they’ve donned their fuzzy socks and hit a jazzy minor, announcing dates for a winter fest in 2021. They’ve moved where the weather suits their clothes, in the words of Simon & Garfunkel, seasons change with the scenery, weaving time in a tapestry. Think fireside chats, crisp performances, fresh installations and delicacies of deciduous delights.
Save the dates, Unify 2021 will hit the Goulburn Valley June 11th to 27th. Shepparton Festival General Manager, Louise Tremper says “We are looking forward to delivering a safe and exciting festival in June 2021. We aim to reignite the creativity that our region is so well known for and to giving a boost to our visitor economy.”
Sure, it’s going to look a little different, but the move allows the Festival team to make progress on their recently released strategic plan, it gives artists time to generate a program that not only inspires and connects, but also fits the COVID-Safe restrictions they may be facing. Festival Creative Director, Jamie Lea says “We are feeling strong and eager to bring our region its 25th Festival. Winter is a wonderful opportunity to explore different indoor/outdoor spaces and use the black of night as our canvas.”
As always, the program will deliver a diverse range of events including visual arts, comedy, music, workshops, films, performance, feasts and a line-up of unique events you won’t want to miss. “Unify is a call to action on so many levels and the perfect theme for a festival post-lockdown. We are all hungry for a festival, but before we know it, June will be right here, and I can’t wait!” says Jamie.
