The hubs

We’re breaking it down – so you can find what you’re looking for.

Main stage

Chill out at the main stage. Bring a picnic rug and some nibbles, then sit back and enjoy live music in the amphitheatre. Local radio host Dillo will MC the event so you don’t miss a beat.

Kids hub

Let the kids run a muck with our free activities. Jump on the bouncy castle, visit a fire truck, paint a mask or rock, ride a bucking bull or test your skills on the bungee run.

Makers and produce markets

Browse the market stalls for local artisanal products and produce. You’ll find goods from local community groups, talented designers, artists and foodies. Make sure you bring a shopping tote to help reduce our carbon footprint.

Free workshops

Learn something new with our range of free workshops – thanks to Bendigo Bank Capel. There’s something for everyone with salsa dancing, aerial silks, skateboarding and art.


Be mesmerised with our carefully curated line up of artists and performers. We’re talking about gravity-defying stunts using aerial silks, talent buskers and hand drumming.

Food Trucks

Travel the world without leaving Capel. Visit Spain with churros, Italy with ice-cream or the Philippines with local cuisine. There’ll be something to suit everyone’s taste.

Supporting the community

This year – we’re supporting mental health. 10 October is World Mental Health Day. The focus is Mental health for all: greater investment, greater access.

We’ve invited some key institutions that support mental health. Have a chat to the teams from Headspace, Capel Youth Collective, St Johns Ambulance, Capel Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade, Dalyellup LDAG, Volunteer South West and SouthWest Women’s Health.

Join in

Are you a local entertainer, stallholder, artist or food vendor?

We’re transforming the Capel Civic Precinct into a hub of activity, providing kids with free activities and the responsible ones with access to artisanal products and produce.

There’ll be live music, entertainment, workshops and demonstrations throughout the day.
