Festival to be Restructured and Relaunched in 2018 

A unanimous decision to continue with Ex Libris Port Fairy Festival of Words was reached on 28 March at the Special Meeting. However all agreed that some major changes were needed in terms of focus, funding and marketing. The festival is therefore taking a break this year so as to come back stronger than ever in 2018. Two strategic planning sessions will take place later this month involving the committee and key advisers.

But keep September 8-10 2017 in your diaries as there is likely to be a scaled down version of the event. Details of this will follow shortly so stay tuned as we enter this exciting new phase of the festival’s life!
