Expression of Interest

Presented over the final weekend in May (30th – 31st 2020), the event will map a multi venue offering, encouraging visitors to wander the majestic streets of Ballarat, visit some of the wonderful tourist attractions on offer and to discover and unearth some of the incredible stories that make Ballarat such a unique and authentic city.

In 2020, we will once again celebrate the people and places of Ballarat – to view these elements differently and engage audiences in a different way. We will also continue to transition the event to offer more engagement opportunities throughout the evenings using fire as a vehicle to achieve this.

Ballarat Heritage Weekend encourages businesses, building owners, community organisations, entertainers, artists and traders to join in creating a wonderful event for tourists and locals alike. We support and welcome participants of the event in the commercialisation of their activity – whether that be via ticketing, cost recuperation, book / art or product sales, request for donation etc.

Selection into Ballarat Heritage Weekend is at the sole discretion of the City of Ballarat Community Events Team and Ballarat Heritage Weekend. ALL applications will be considered. The Expressions of Interest (EOI) process is designed to invite interested parties to participate in the event and to leverage this opportunity. We also encourage working collaboratively with other organisations where efficiencies can be identified.

What We Are Looking For

Ballarat Heritage Weekend offers a wide range of entertainment and engagement options. These include but are not limited to:

  • Walks, talks, tours, workshops, hospitality events / offerings, music, exhibitions, experiences, shopping and much more! The more unique and authentic the better!
