Welcome to Words in Winter 2019

Words in Winter is an annual regional festival of words and ideas, that brings warmth and solace to our community during the unforgiving, cold month of August in Daylesford.

This year the festival will be held on the third weekend in August, from Friday 16 August to Sunday 18 August 2019 with various events throughout the month. We are currently working on the programme so please check back soon to see what we come up with!  

If you’d like to check out all the glorious events from last year, you can view them here.

“To celebrate a festival means: to live out, for some special occasion and in an uncommon manner, the universal assent to the world as a whole.”

Josef Pieper
