Fireside Yarra Valley is a 16-day festival of events that celebrate the great things about winter in the Yarra Valley: short days, crisp nights and an icy chill in the air that steals one’s breath away, whilst awakening something within. Immerse yourself in all the season has to offer in sights, sounds, smells and tastes, against the alluring warmth of an open fire.

Running from 9th – 24th July, Fireside is the perfect opportunity to enjoy the finest foods and wines of one of Australia’s premier wine regions, featuring curated winemaker dinners, masterclasses and tasting events incorporating all the delicious elements of winter in the region; fire, smoke, warmth and wine. Plus you’ll have the chance to witness several YAVA artists making art within the wineries themselves!

YAVA Artists will be in residence at Wineries across the Yarra Valley – over 3 wekends – join us!
