This year sees a change in the way the Festival is managed. Community groups are encouraged to run their own events. The Grenfell Car Club have independently successfully managed and grown their event over the years and it is hoped community members will embrace the revival of the Henry Lawson Festival of the Arts and re-establish some of the treasured Festival events.

Family favourites like the Guinea Pig Races are once again returning organized by the Grenfell Golf Club. The Wood Chop is to be featured along with many other familiar events. We do apologise if we have not been in touch with your organization to see if you are interested in running something this year, with the delay in decision making as to determining that there would be a Festival this year, your Festival committee have a lot to put in place to ensure street locations etc are in place prior to asking for the community to come on board. We are now moving forward with an evolving website that will bring you more feature events as we connect with you to ensure everyone can have the opportunity to revive attractions to make this Festival a truly memorable occasion.
