Out West Piano Fest
Fri 27 October - Sun 29 October
After a sell-out launch in 2022, Out West Piano Fest is back in October 2023.
It will once again be held in the glorious regional setting of Blackdown Farm, just five minutes from the town centre of Bathurst NSW. A location steeped in pastoral heritage, art and culture; it was once home to the Australian artist Tim Storrier.
The extensive gardens in full spring bloom will once again provide a stunning backdrop to sumptuous food and wine events. The providores of the central west will feature in a suite of gastronomic experiences over the weekend – an inspirational weekend celebrating the piano and four superb pianists, who will move and excite, educate and entertain you.
The What’s On calendar covers arts and heritage events happening across the NSW Central West in the local government areas of Bathurst Region, Blayney, Cabonne, Cowra, Forbes, Lachlan, Lithgow, Mid-Western Region, Oberon, Orange, Parkes and Weddin.
