Travel back in time to where it all began with Festival of Busselton’s inaugural History Exhibition: 55 Years Young!
Thanks to the the generous support of Creative Spaces and the City of Busselton - Local Government this special exhibition features a wonderful collection of images and memorabilia from the Festival of Busselton’s early years on the Vasse River right through to today’s festivities, which are celebrated throughout the CBD an on Busselton’s stunning Foreshore.
55 Years Young showcases the people, places and events that make the Festival of Busselton so loved and includes marvellous moving film from the first ever Festival in 1964. The exhibition, which is housed in Busselton’s Railway House, incorporates the historic Ballaarat Engine to create a virtual mini-float inspired by the Festival’s iconic Float Parade.
This FREE event will appeal to both adults and children, as well as history lovers, families who have attended the Festival for generations, and visitors to the south west alike, and includes a fun photo opportunity for those keen to share the experience via selfies with Festival Queen cloaks, tiaras and sashes, and pirate hats and swords for children provided to dress up in.
You are invited to take this colourful journey through the key milestones in the Festival of Busselton’s history and gain an insight to those events that have engaged the community for over half a century.
