Shepparton Albanian Harvest Festival

The Shepparton Albanian Harvest Festival showcases the Albanian culture unlike any other event in Australia. The 2019 Harvest Festival will be held at the Shepparton Showgrounds on Sunday, 24 March.


Held annually each March in Shepparton, the Harvest Festival entertains audiences with traditional Albanian music and dancing, along with a fruit and vegetable market that offers produce grown and packed by local farmers.

Albanians in Shepparton maintained their distinct cultural heritage and language by building, in the 1960s, the first mosque in Victoria, and by organising Albanian community events, many of which continue today. The Shepparton Albanian Harvest Festival is a celebrated festival in the Goulburn Valley.

Supported by the Shepparton Albanian Women’s Committee, the festival also features traditional Albanian food available for purchase. There is also plenty of entertainment for the family.

Entry is by gold coin donation.
