Event description


The Arts in the Olives Festival 2017 on 14 May will be our 10th Festival. Our theme is "Celebrating Ten Years of Creativity". We will be revisiting some of the most popular workshops over the ten years as well as some new ones.

The Arts in the Olives Festival is a collaboration between BADCAP-Beaudesert and District Community Arts Projects (Ass. Inc.) and the Lost World Valley community.

As always, this is a day to enjoy creativity, learn skills and take home your very own masterpiece, or simply to wander amongst the olive trees and along the peaceful riverbank enjoying the sights, sounds and tastes.

Food offerings promise to be delicious, tantalising and varied to suit all tastes.

There is an excellent music programme for 2017 featuring talented local artists and over 40 artisan stalls will again offer beautiful hand made goods and organic and home grown produce.

Music, stalls, food and wine tasting and other festival activities will occur throughout the day.
