  • The goal of Winter Weekends is to boost economic, cultural and community growth in our slowest season of the year.

  • The festival is 100% organised and run by local volunteers.

  • We put a huge amount of effort into local, regional and Melbourne-based promotion to entice locals and visitors alike. And remember - your sponsorship covers the longest festival in town, over two months!

  • Your sponsorship fee contributes towards printing, street performers’ fees, our annual Light Up Port Fairy program and other free events we curate to create a memorable experience and atmosphere in town.

    In 2020, in partnership with Festivals Australia, we’ll be hosting a very special art installation with a visiting artist. Stay tuned for this exciting Australian-first, designed to entice new audiences from the region and beyond. We can’t wait!

We thank all the fabulous businesses who have sponsored us in the past
and look forward to working hard
on another amazing program for 2020.
