"Our unique festival, entirely run by volunteers, brings together residents, local community, businesses, and attractions to stage events for the whole community.”

Sharon Blaikie, 2024 Festival Committee Chair

Arundel Festival plays an important role in the annual life of the town, bringing together the whole community as well as marketing Arundel as a top destination for the benefit of residents, businesses and visitors throughout the year. The 10 day ‘multi-arts’ and entertainment event is a celebration of everything that makes Arundel such a wonderful, inviting and unique place to live, work and visit.

The committee, organisers and volunteers work tirelessly behind the scenes to put Arundel on the map as a place brimming with creativity, cultural heritage and community spirit to ensure this Festival is not one to be missed.
