3rd & 4th June 2017 - PINJARRA FESTIVAL @ Edenvale

 

 

As advised by the Shire of Murray, this is Murray’s largest community event!

 

The Pinjarra Festival showcases the vibrant and culturally rich elements of the Shire of Murray. It further celebrates Murray’s distinctive rural history and lifestyle, parading local arts, crafts, produce and recreational activities significant to the region.

 

The festival will boast an entertainment line-up of headlining acts that will entice all ages, as well as an array of musicians, market stalls, amusement rides and free children’s activities.

 

Remember when the Festival is on, please also call in to the Old Schoolmaster’s House for a variety of displays and memorabilia of Pinjarra during the settlement years to the present day.
