Costumes & prizes

Mid Winter Festival costume prize winner from 2015
Let your imagination run as wild as the festival itself...
Inspired by pagan traditions, the earth and all its elements, the changing seasons and traditional Morris dancing costumes, we encourage festival goers to dress up and express themselves. The festival has a history of attracting huge crowds of attendees donning greenery, feathers, fur and leather, and with over $2,000 of prize money to give out, it’s a good idea to get started early on creating your work of art! For inspiration you can visit our Instagram or Facebook page which will showcase some of the previous year’s costumes, and will give you an idea of the overall feel of the festival.
