The 2019 Canberra and Region Heritage Festival will be 23 days of celebration for the region's Aboriginal, historic and natural heritage.
The theme for 2019 is 'S P A C E' and not just outer space. There are so many meanings for space which means a bigger variety for you. Space can be a place or location, an interval of time, an expanse or clearance.
Of course the 50th anniversary of the Moon landing will be a key part, as that footage of Neil Armstrong walking on the Moon, was beamed to the world from Canberra. Come explore, celebrate, share and preserve our heritage.
With over 100 events, most free, you can enjoy tours, open days, dances, talks, dinners, markets and more. The festival raises awareness to the ongoing need to conserve the region's natural, historic and Aboriginal heritage. So leave some 'space' in your diary and come along.
