Hepburn Shire is home to over 40 events every year, ranging from small local events to large events of State significance that attract thousands.

Council plays a key role in supporting a large number of these events through the provision of funding, access to public spaces and assisting with waste and
traffic management.

Council are proud supporters of the ChillOut Festival in Daylesford. ChillOut is kicking off on Friday 6 March. The Festival features a number of popular events, including the ChillOut Street Parade, Carnival Day and Dance Party throughout the Labour Day long weekend.
