Burnie Shines – Registrations now open!

Published on 08 May 2019


Registrations are now open to be a part of the 2019 Burnie Shines program. 

If you are staging an event in Burnie in October 2019 and would like to include it in the Burnie Shines festival program, which includes a listing on our new website, then register now. 

Burnie Shines links together many small to medium events to create an annual spring celebration. Drawing audiences from along the entire North West Coast, this festival is a unique mix of exhibitions, shows, events, performances and parties. 

Burnie City Council Mayor Steve Kons said, “Burnie Shines, now in its 19th year, remains a key feature on Burnie’s events calendar. Every year it brings together such a wonderful array of performances and events, with something to suit everyone. 

“Last years’ Burnie Shines festival, encompassing more than 100 events, kicked off with a memorable launch in the Advocate industrial laneway, a huge success! A highlight of the festival was the inaugural ‘Burnie Bite & Brew’ and I can’t wait to see how this event evolves in this year’s festival. 

“Burnie Shines is a great example of what can happen when many small groups are brought together, and what results is a festival that the whole community can be proud of.”
