Back to Steiglitz Festival 2014

In 2014 there were plenty of people, fun, food and activities including the inaugural sewing competition on the old treadle sewing machines.  

The Back to Steiglitz Festival began over 100 years ago as a reunion of the past residents of Steiglitz and their descendents. Every festival attracts descendents and those keen to find out more about their own histories and the fascinating history of the township.

The festival is organised by the Back to Steiglitz Association Inc. a local group of volunteers who continue the tradition of the reunion. It is a fun family day in keeping with the old fashioned theme that is displayed in this township. Money raised by the Association will assist in the restoration and maintenance of the historic buildings and surrounds for the benefit of the community and visitors.

Entry to the festival is free! Though some events are via gold coin donation.
