Be part of Arts Ablaze

You can join the Scenic Rim’s arts community for a five-day celebration featuring market stalls, performances, workshops, food trucks and family fun.

Arts Ablaze picks up where Arts in the Olives left off. Your favourite Scenic Rim artisans are back.

Arts Ablaze is the region’s largest art and cultural festival, to be hosted by the Scenic Rim Regional Council at the Ramada Resort, from October 2 to 6.

Celebrate the arts and get your creative on at the Arts Ablaze celebrations. It’s fun for the whole family.

Choose from 15 adult artisan workshops, teaching everything from basketry to blacksmithing. The kids will love the free workshops and activities designed just for them.

Make the most of the incredible, jam-packed performance and workshop calendar and stay. Book into the Ramada Resort, or try a luxury glamping experience by Glamping Days Hire Co.

The Arts Ablaze event is funded by the Australian Government’s Building Better Regions Fund and Scenic Rim Mayor Greg Christensen says the event is expected to attract more than 5000 visitors to the region and provide a platform for the local arts community to prosper.

“We’re extremely proud of the multicultural diversity in our region and bringing an event of this calibre to the Scenic Rim will not only benefit the professional development of our local artists, but will also enhance the region’s reputation as a destination for large-scale educational and artistic events,” he says.
