Nightjar Festival

  • The River

    The NightJar Festival began in 2010

    NightJar (named after a local owlet that lives on the land) is set by the ocean nestled amongst the trees along the riverbank. It is a vibrant, colourful and eclectic mix of a night market, music festival, showcase for emerging designers, art exhibition, and soul.

    Many attending the festival have described it as entering into another world. We encourage you to leave your worries at the gate, step inside and celebrate life, family, friends, music, dancing and shopping. As music lovers at the NightJar we are proud to provide a platform for a wide variety of independent, progressive and down right talented musicians who will keep your toes tapping for hours.


    The alcohol area has a great vibe where tasty local Otway Estate beer is on tap, local wines and delicious Sangria served cold. While eating your dinner and enjoying a drink you can watch as amazing ice sculptor Mark Trinham creates magic from a huge block of ice.

    Not forgetting the gaggle of little “NightJarers” that love the festival, there is a magical kids area that is bound to be in many a sweet dream of our little visitors! And lastly for those that just want to chill out, have a cuppa and watch the festival go by, there is the stunning Rajasthan wedding tent decorated like an exotic maharajah’s teahouse.

    In 2014 the NightJar ventured into Geelong. The dedicated and awesome NightJar crew pulled up its pegs at the end of January and moved into Geelong for Friday nights in February. The very beautiful Johnstone Park, located in the central hub of Geelong, is now the home to “NightJar in the City”. The festival is smaller, a little more intimate and has a great vibrant city vibe. Still bustling with the NightJar atmosphere, arts, music, food and designers, NightJar at Johnstone Park is the place to end the working week.
