Producer of Clunes Booktown Festival and Clunes Ceramic Award


In 2007, the first Booktown (Booktown for a Day) was held attracting over 6,000 visitors. Since then, a two day festival, Clunes Booktown Festival has been held annually. Over 100 booktraders from around Australia bring stock to the town and set up shop for the weekend. Street entertainment, food and wine, music and writer’s talks add to the festivities.
In April 2012, Clunes gained International Organisation of Booktowns membership, becoming the 15th International Booktown and the only Booktown in Australia.
Our most recent Booktown, in March 2023, saw around 12,000 people come to Clunes and surrounding regions.


The Clunes Ceramic Award is a biennial acquisitive award of fine Australian ceramics. First held in 2009, our most recent event saw 150 entries, 47 finalists and 6 winners.


As we look to Booktown Festival & Ceramic Award 2024, we are coming off the back of COVID uncertainties, depleted cash reserves, and increasing costs, we are trying to keep Booktown sustainable and accessible to all, so we are seeking support to keep the festival operations within budget.
