The 3-Village Art Festival is the first of its kind, a significant and unique two-day event celebration of the arts held amongst the three picturesque and historic villages of Paterson, Vacy and Gresford situated in the Paterson and Allyn River Valleys.

Starting at Tocal Agriculture College, about 20 minutes from Maitland on the Dungog Road, festival goers will travel between the villages viewing a wide range of works from some of Australia’s most talented artists and photographers while enjoying the magnificent countryside, with its diversity of small farms and villages.

At each Village (about 6km apart) art, photography, sculpture, woodwork and numerous other examples of visual arts will be displayed. There will also be market stalls, vintage car and bike displays, as well as children’s activities and entertainment to keep the whole family entertained.

A range of classic Aussie pubs in East Gresford, Vacy and Paterson offer traditional country pub surroundings as well as good food. The 3-Village Art Festival will truly ensure that there is indeed, something for everyone!

A mix of stall holders are invited to participate in the event on the Sat and Sun of the Festival.
