In the ACT, the Canberra and Region Heritage Festival runs from 13 – 28 April. In line with the Australian Heritage Festival, the theme is Connections and provides an opportunity for the community to access events and exhibitions, gather stories and tell them, celebrate through ceremony and performances, share knowledge through open days, talks, and tours, and have fun bringing heritage to life.

The Canberra and Region Heritage Festival will be officially launched on 14 March. Bookings for some events will not open until then.
