Henry Lawson Festival of the Arts

Start planning an extraordinary June long weekend trip now to the artistic heart of the Central West with a swag of competitions to enter in the lead-up to this iconic Grenfell event.

The festival is a tribute to Lawson’s legendary Australian stories and poetry were acclaimed throughout his life and showcases the region’s heritage and tourist attractions with entertainment for everyone including a vibrant street parade and party, market stalls and performers.

Saturday’s main event will see the return of the festival’s much loved street parade and then the party gets started with roving street entertainment, live music and an array of market stalls.
