Ned Kelly Weekend
2016 will see this event have a one year break. Please visit again for details of 2017 event as the festivals date gets closer.
The Ned Kelly Weekend commemorates the anniversary of the committal hearing of the bushranger at the Beechworth Courthouse in August 1880.
The 2015 weekend will mark the 135 anniversary since the committal hearing took place and 35 years since the filming of the most accurate depictions of the Kelly story, Australian mini series the last outlaw. The cast of the hit series will team up once again this year with the organisers of the weekend with historical reenactments and explore the stories.
Throughout of the weekend the township of Beechworth will step back in time and will bring the Ned Kelly story alive with events that will include:
- Walking tours of Beechworth
- Story telling
- Ned Kelly Vault
- Dinner with the stars
- Childresn activities including treasure hunts, pony rides and biscuit making
- Live music
