Local businesses and community groups are encouraged to take advantage of the Bathurst Winter Festival, and hold their own event or promotion as part of the festival.
The additional events encourage visitors and locals to explore the Bathurst Region and extend their stay during what was previously a quiet time of year for local businesses and tourism providers.
We encourage local businesses to come up with new and exciting events, activities or promotions to be included in the Bathurst Winter Festival Program of Events.
