Get set for the 2017 Rotary Eltham Festival. Mark 11 & 12 November in your diaries now. The Festival Committee has been hard at work planning some new and exciting events for this year's festival.
Fancy a free return trip on a double decker bus from Eltham town to ride the miniature trains at Lower Eltham Park? Diamond Valley Railway are joining the festival fun this year by sponsoring free double decker bus rides between Eltham Station & Lower Eltham Park on Saturday afternoon and all-day Sunday. DVR will run the trains on Saturday afternoon as well as their normal Sunday operations. They will also have a locomotive on display in Alistair Knox Park. Stay tuned for more details.
Yarra Plenty Library are joining in the fun this year. Lots of fun reading activities for kids and a 'chill out' zone for sensory challenged children will operate on Saturday afternoon.
Have you ever been seen a Royal Flying Doctor Service plane or wondered how the service operates? Come and visit their display in Alistair Knox Park on Sunday.
The MG car club display last year was a great hit. This year, the cars will be there to be admired on both Saturday and Sunday.
And come and meet Polly the rainbow lorikeet, Charlie the Pig, and Goaty goat as well as lots of of other animals at Farmer Darryl's mobile animal farm. Farmer Darryl's farm will be available on both Saturday and Sunday.
As usual, there will three stages of music this year featuring blues/jazz, youth bands and community groups. The Have a Go Oval program of local community and sporting activities returns to Eltham Central Park.
