21-23 April 2017
Jane Austen Festival Australia is an annual celebration in Canberra where Austen and Napoleonic fans from all over Australia come and indulge themselves in everything Regency - including dancing, music, food, games, archery, fencing, theatre, promenades, grand balls, talks, workshops, costumes and books. This festival is now a regular part of the ACT Heritage Festival, Australian Heritage Week and is supported by the ACT Government, the Australian Costumers Guild and the Earthly Delights Historic Dance Academy. Since its inception in 2008 this little festival has blossomed into one of the most delightful four days anyone could experience each April in an old and beautiful part of Canberra, the Federal capital of Australia.

Jane Austen Festival Australia 2011
I love the weather we're getting for the Jane Austen Festival this weekend. Off to the promenade and chess dance in Commonwealth Park very soon, then onto the church concert and afternoon dance. Last night's ball was the biggest we've had yet and the best :D (Even managed to make a batch of syllabub for everyone) Catch us on ABC news tonight, the Canberra Times and a story in the Sydney Morning Herald next week.
