Established in 1983, Pako Festa has been the heart of Geelong’s cultural identity for almost 40 years.

A new interactive timeline is in development that will capture images, stories, past event programs, posters, media articles and media that reflect community participation.

The completed timeline will be launched in February 2022. The framework of the timeline was developed in partnership with the Committee for Geelong, 2020-21 Leaders Program.

Through expanding the reach of Pako Festa, the timeline will help grow the potential economic revenue generated by the event and instil Geelong as a destination of choice for cultural events.

Friends of the Festa members will receive early access to the timeline and the opportunity to add their own photos and memories
