History is alive in Ballarat all year around but will be shining in its golden glory in May 2010 with a weekend-long festival that celebrates the region’s rich cultural heritage.

Grand buildings, enchanting gardens, intriguing memorabilia and collections will be on display – many just for the weekend – allowing visitors to dig and delve into history they’ve never had the chance to explore before.

Lovers of all things vintage are in for a treat with a range of collections to enthuse over, from walking sticks that remind us of a time when life moved a little slower and people generally cared about quality, to Louis Vuitton luggage, swimsuits, working steam engines, vintage and classic cars, and bicycles.
