A rag-tag band of east gippsland natives, bringing you the FROUTEVILLE you have grown to know and love, with a spectacular vaudevillean twist.

FROUTEVILLE is a celebration of art, music, food, community and localism, proudly brought to you by a dedicated committee, and hosted by F.INC [the grown-up (f)route].

You really should join for us a fun weekend. Stay just for the fun-filled Saturday [scroll down for way more!] full of free entertainment, workshops, activities [or see our program, coming soon, for a full overview of the day, including prices if applicable] or really commit and camp the night. You can book tickets to partake in our community dinner feast, or just sit and enjoy the music well into the evening. Every year FROUTEVILLE just gets better and better, and now, with a VENUE CHANGE to BRACKENBUSH in LAKES ENTRANCE we have been able to grow our dreams wildly! Proudly supported by Regional Arts Victoria and the Regional Arts Fund.
