What better way to welcome in summer than to enjoy music in the hospitable surrounds of the quirkiest pub in Central Victoria – yes, the good folks at the Commercial Hotel Kingston have opened their hearts and their venue to us, to bring music, laughter, dancing and joy to the start of the season. Profits will go to help CresFest Inc to build music in our community. A light supper included in your ticket price – or come early for dinner (bookings essential). Wander Trace’s gardens, check out the displays celebrating Kingston’s heritage and make sure to enjoy a slow drive or walk down the magnificent Kingston Avenue Of Honour. Raffles, merch and CresFest tickets on sale on the night also.
