Welcome to the Henry Lawson Festival - Grenfell, NSW

The Henry Lawson Festival is an annual event held in Grenfell, NSW on the June long weekend. Grenfell is the birthplace of Henry Lawson, one of Australia's best loved poets and writer of short stories. This year, 2014 is the 57th year of the festival, and promises to be one of our best yet.

The festival kicks off on the evening of Thursday June 5, with a special event at the Grenfell Art Gallery, and from there, through to Monday June 9 a wide array of exhibitions, events and entertainment will be on show for all tastes and ages. A variety of arts exhibitions, colourful street procession, children's rides, street entertainment including busking and live music, and car show are just a few of the wonderful events taking place over the festival weekend.

If you've never been to the Henry Lawson Festival, or if you're looking for something different to do over the 2014 June long weekend in NSW, then this might just be the perfect long weekend to come to Grenfell and experience all that the town and surrounding areas have to offer. If you are a regular festival patron, then we look forward to seeing you and hopefully your friends and family again this year.

Be sure to check back here regularly as information on events and entertainment will be continually updated leading up to the festival. General information including location, travel and accommodation is available on the website, or if you have a specific enquiry please do contact us directly.

Thanks for dropping in!
