Join us under the big top for a day of Australia’s top country, bluegrass and rockabilly artists. Headlined by Aussie music legend Tex Perkins, Kingston’s Harvest Festival marks the celebration of the autumn harvest. Dating back to British-Saxon times, harvest celebrations were held when the success of a crop governed the lives of people and communities.
Harvest Festival has something for the whole family including non-stop music, fresh food and cooking demonstrations in the Harvest Kitchen, sustainable workshops in the Green Hub, market stalls, delicious locally produced food, licensed bar and amusement rides.
Harvest Festival’s headline act is Aussie music legend Tex Perkins
Tex Perkins is an Australian singer-songwriter, who is widely known for fronting the popular Australian rock-band The Cruel Sea, but has also performed with the Beasts of Bourbon, Thug, James Baker Experience, The Butcher Shop, Salamander Jim, and Tex, Don and Charlie.
In 1997, a portrait of Tex Perkins by artist Bill Leak won the Packing Room award at the Archibald Prize.
