Burnie Shines Logo

From humble beginnings in 2001 with 25 events, Burnie Shines has grown into a festival with more than 100 events.

The Burnie Shines Festival draws on the city's reputation as a place for makers and creators, and links together a collection of events to create a Burnie-made celebration each spring.

Burnie is a hive of activity in October, with a festival that reflects the passions and interests of the community courtesy of a feast of exhibitions, events, performances and parties.

After 18 fabulous years, we are looking forward to a new-look festival in 2019.
