The 2021 Australian Heritage Festival in Victoria is back for another year, running from 18 April to 2 May.

While 2020 has been a challenging year, for many, it has created space to reflect on the places, practices, traditions, objects and ‘things’ that enrich our lives. The 2021 Australian Heritage Festival will be an opportunity to reconnect with the places and traditions we value, and to share them with a broad-ranging audience.

The 2021 Festival will look a little different, and won’t include the production of the Victorian Printed Program. This is to ensure flexibility for all event organisers who may require changes to their event details.


Registrations for the 2021 Australian Heritage Festival in Victoria have now closed.

COVID-19 Guidelines

All events registered in the Australian Heritage Festival must comply with the COVID-19 safety guidelines of the Department of Health and Human Services Victoria. Please download and read the Victorian Organisers Kit for further information.
