The Brighter Days Festival is a 3 day family fundraising event held annually on the March Labour Day weekend. The Festival Precinct is located within Pioneer Park in the beautiful township of Bright, Victoria.
The Festival Entertainment precinct is a grassed open-air venue and patrons are encouraged to BYO chair / picnic rug. There is a chair-free zone immediately in front of the stage which is for dancing/standing room only. BYO Alcohol is not permitted into the Festival Precinct however alcohol will be available to purchase from our fully stocked BDF Bar. You may BYO food and there will be a wide variety of Food and Retail Stalls on site. All bags will need to be presented to security at the Festival entrance.
Don't want to BYO chair? Upgrade to a FESTIVAL RS PASS and we'll provide a chair in our Reserved Seating area directly in front of the stage subsequent to the dancing/standing room for the whole weekend. The Reserved Seating area has its own bar and toilet facilities. You will be allocated a seat number when ordering so get organised and order with your family and friends if you'd like to sit together. Please note: all patrons (even children) must have a valid Reserved Seating ticket to enter this area. (Can only be purchased online - before midday Thursday 7th March 2024)
The rest of the venue is General Admission unreserved and can be accessed by either a 3 day FESTIVAL GA PASS or an individual DAY GA PASS for either Friday, Saturday or Sunday. As well as unlimited access in/out of the Festival Entertainment precinct, each FESTIVAL GA PASS also includes free entry for a bike or car entry into the Car / Bike Show 'n Shine, the Sounds of Silence Silent Disco and The Amazing Chase however as there is limited availablility it's first in so we recommend you register for these events here online to avoid missing out.
All patrons - no matter their age - require a valid ticket to enter the Festival precinct. In order to be compliant with our Liquor Licence and for patrons health and safety we have created a YOUTH GA PASS (AGED 15-17). Available as either a 3 day or 1 day pass these patrons will need to nominate their responsible adult companion and provide contact details at the time of booking and will be asked to show some form of ID on collection of their wristband. CHILD GA PASSES (AGED 0-14) remain free, but all count towards our patron limit so all MUST still hold a valid ticket - be sure to register online and early to avoid disappointment.
As ours is a licenced venue, ALL UNDER 18 PATRONS will need to be accompanied by a responsible adult EVERY TIME they enter our fully licensed venue.
The precinct will have free kids activities, food and retails stalls, car & bike displays, kids amusements and rides and more...
