The Nightjar Festival

Step inside the wonderland that is the Nightjar Festival! Over 8 weeks in summer you will be immersed in the magical atmosphere of music, roving performers, buskers and culinary delights.

The splendor begins in Torquay on Thursday nights overlooking the sun setting over the ocean. Then to Geelong on Friday nights – a festival that is cheeky and full of life.
