The Penola Festival Association Incorporated is a voluntary, non-profit organisation that in 2016 will conduct its 25th festival.
2016 will see the Penola Coonawarra Arts Festival attract major events and exhibitions appealing to a broad audience. We are fortunate to be one of the few festivals in regional South Australia that has the potential to generate significant cultural tourism with an easily recognisable wine brand in Coonawarra and the fine food of the Limestone Coast.
Events include Co-Opera, a comprehensive Family Programme, AUD8000.00 John Shaw Neilson Acquisitive Art Prize, Festival Design Prize, Coonawarra Hall Music Night of Shenanigans and many more art exhibitions, competitions, food and wine.
The events appeal to families, children, art lovers and all festival goers.
