A Community Celebration – The Back to Steiglitz Festival - Sunday 23 October

  • Print

The next Back to Steiglitz Festival is planned for October 2018.  

The 2016 Festival was again a great success.

As aptly quirky as the little ghost town itself, there’s something to delight everyone: gold panning, a blacksmith, Stalls, kids games, country baking, guided walking tour, musicians, engines, lace making, raffles, a BBQ, historical displays, the famous action-packed Steiglitz Billy Cart Races, and more!

With free entry, and prices that won’t break the bank, there was something for everyone plus  helping the Back to Steiglitz Association (BTS) do what they do best – save the town’s historic buildings from tumbling down and disappearing forever.

Though this Festival isn’t just a fundraiser for Steiglitz. Or simply a reunion.  It’s a real coming together of groups from many different towns … a reflection of our wider community.  And by attending you’ll be showing your support for all those families who make this such a great place to live.

Some of us may be lucky enough to not realize how much that can mean.  While others know that the smallest gesture of community support can make a world of difference.

For more about our previous Back to Steiglitz Festivals

  • Buy a snag and help the Maude CFA. 
  • Yummy scones and jam will mean the Anakie PFA can give their kids a better education.
  • Entering the Billy Cart Races will be broadening the horizons of local scouts and cubs. 
  •  Enjoying high tea at Peppercorn Place Café will be supporting a wonderful woman building up her tiny business. 
  • Visiting the Steiglitz Historical Society’s Museum will inspire their volunteers to keep up all their hard work. 
  • And enjoying mouthwatering home cooking from Sugg’s tiny blacksmith’s cottage will enable the BTS to finish painting St. Paul’s Church.
  • Volunteer for a 2-hour shift and share any ideas you have to assist our small group and the success of the Festival.

So come on everyone, let’s all get behind this terrific little event, and do what country people are famous for - supporting our neighbours.

Back to Steiglitz Festival is put on by a group of volunteers.  We’ve been around a long time, and are about much more than raising money.  We’re about socializing, learning & sharing skills, fun, respect, friendship, and above all lots and lots of laughter.  Become a welcome member of this award winning association!
