The Barossa Vintage Festival has a longstanding history as a celebration of vintage, dating back to 1947 when the Barossa community got together to celebrate the end of grape harvest and vintage.
The festival is acknowledged as the largest and longest running wine tourism event in Australia. With previous Barossa Vintage Festivals having attracted over 55,000 people it is also South Australia’s largest regional festival.
The Barossa Vintage Festival has always been a celebration ‘by Barossans for Barossans’ to which we have now invited the rest of the world to come and celebrate – engaging visitors in an immersive food and wine experience, against the back drop of Barossan history and heritage.
The 2017 events (which also celebrated the 70th year of the Barossa Vintage Festival) saw over 90 dynamic events showcasing the Barossa’s wine, food, culture and heritage. The 2019 Festival celebrates the 40th anniversary of Ziegenmarkt, which is undoubtedly a highlight of the biennial program.
The Barossa Vintage Festival will be held from 24-29 August 2019. In respect of ANZAC Day, no events will be programmed prior to 12 noon on April 25.
