The Penola Coonawarra Arts Festival, now in its 20th year, is one of the most distinguished regional festivals in Australia, and has become ‘South Australia’s leading regional arts festival’.
The festival celebrates the literary and arts heritage of Penola, the fine wines of Coonawarra and our premium regional produce. With the last festival taking over 11 days, there were plenty of activities to please the crowds of all ages. Event features include local and national artist exhibitions, music, dance, literary and history tours, Farmers’ market, photographic exhibition and a competitions,
The Penola Coonawarra Arts Festival is organised by the Penola Festival Association Incorporated a voluntary, non-profit organisation. Since its inception the festival has attracted major events and exhibitions that have appealed to a broad audience and have contributed to Penola’s and Coonawarra growing profile. By amalgamating with the Coonawarra Vignerons and incorporating the ‘Coonawarra Unearthed’ programme into the Penola Coonawarra Arts Festival they have continued to broaden the only arts based festival in the Limestone Coast.
Come and let your creativity run wild, lose yourself amongst the colour, words, music, food and wine at the Penola Coonawarra Arts Festival!
