NightJar Festival Geelong

Torquay and Geelong NightJar Festivals


The NightJar began in all its innocence, in 2010 – we had no idea then that our vision of a little night market would become such a huge success and an essential part of the community! Creators, Lyndelle and Kyla, spend their days collaborating on ideas, becoming inspired, and dreaming up wonderful new experiences to keep you coming back to the Nightjar Festival year after year.

NightJar (named after a local owlet that lives on the land) is set by the ocean nestled amongst the trees along the riverbank. It is a vibrant, colourful and eclectic mix of a night market, music festival, showcase for emerging designers, art exhibition, and soul.

Many attending the festival have described it as entering into another world. We encourage you to leave your worries at the gate, step inside and celebrate life, family, friends, music, dancing and shopping. As music lovers at the NightJar we are proud to provide a platform for a wide variety of independent, progressive and down right talented musicians who will keep your toes tapping for hours.

bellarine kids are stoked to be a part of the Torquay NightJar Festival in January and the Geelong NightJar Festival in February in 2015! Earlier this year, 10-13,000 visitors enjoyed the weekly event.

If you run a local child friendly biz or service or are a part of a community group and would you like to join us in the Nightjar Festival KIDS ZONE, please contact and register your interest ASAP.

Register your interest by THIS FRIDAY, October 31st, as we only have a few spaces remaining for each event.
