A week of music, theatre, dance, comedy, workshops, exhibitions and more in Emerald.

Performing and visual arts comes alive in Emerald with live music, dance and art at various venues and a street fair with entertainment. The PAVE community arts festival continues to grow each year with involvement of a wide range of artists and community groups, bringing you events and activities to stimulate your mind, please your taste buds and excite your eyes and ears.

Each year the festival develops our connection with place, people and environment through the program of arts activities. This year we are raising awareness of the plight of endangered birds and featuring the critically endangered helmeted honeyeater on our cover (adapted from an original illustration by Ann Lumina). This bird, local to our area is Victoria’s bird emblem and number only hundreds left in the world.

So make like a bird and consider your environment as you fly in to PAVE for a week of music, theatre, dance, comedy, workshops, exhibitions and much more.
