Chairman's Welcome

Summertime in Port Fairy, Hello and Welcome, to all new comers to the Port Fairy Moyneyana Festival and, of course, for those to whom our Festival is an institution. Welcome.

Our full program of activities and events will ensure a very active and enjoyable summer holiday period in Port Fairy. This year 3YB Coast FM has joined with Port Fairy Community Bank / Bendigo Bank as joint Major Sponsors enabling my Volunteer Committee to co ordinate another fun filled Program of varied entertainment. I sincerely thank all Sponsors, Major / Minor and all Port Fairy Traders and enthusiastic Volunteers for their continued support.

I ask that you support those who support us and the not for profit organisations who continue to participate in the Moyneyana Festival.

When studying this program you will find a number of new inclusions such as the PET APPRECIATION DAY, and a new range of musical performers/performances, all exciting additions. Our theme this year, SEA SAND & SONG, encapsulates our beautiful Port Fairy, and I am sure will inspire great entries in our iconic New Year's Eve Parade.

My Volunteer committee, is always seeking feedback/comments, on your Moyneyana Festival experience and ask that you take the time to contact us as we continue with our efforts to improve our FREE family friendly programs.

Port Fairy was acknowledged in 2012 as the Worlds Most Liveable Small Community, and we hope you enjoy our festival which no doubt did play a part in enabling our town to win such a prestigious award. May I encourage visitors to take the opportunity to absorb the beauty of the Township and the surrounding Moyne Shire.


May you have a truly wonderful holiday experience in Port Fairy and all that Moyne Shire has to offer, enjoy "MOYNEYANA", drive safely on your journey home from the World's most liveable small community. If you are a visitor please remember you are welcome at any time in Historic Port Fairy, the Jewel in the Crown of South West Victoria.
