The Mary Valley Art Festival began in 2000 and celebrates its 15th year in 2015. It is held in the town of Imbil in Mary Valley Country in July over four days.

Opening night is a fantastic night celebrating award winners over wine and fine food. The viewing days of Friday, Saturday and Sunday also attract many hundreds of day trippers from surrounding regions and locals alike.

The festival is known for its friendly and professional approach, attracting quality art work and providing an opportunity for the arts investor.

We warmly welcome anyone who would like to work with us as a volunteer (please see volunteer page or contact us).

This year the festival is proud to be part of maryvalleyARTSlink - a new lead organisation that supports all art and cultural events and activities in the Mary Valley.

Opening Night, 6pm start, Thursday July 2

Entry Fee $5 for Mary Valley Artslink  members
$7.50 for non-members
Imbil Public Hall,  Edward Street, Imbil, Mary Valley

The awards presentation on opening night is a chance to meet the artists in a great atmosphere with music, wine and finger food.

Each year the artwork on display is testament to the creative abilities of individuals residing in our communities, while visitors attending the festival share the privilege of being able to view or buy the results of many hours of intense effort and passion.

We would love you to come and join in the fun.
