The Wang Lit Fest and Book Fair grew from a Rotary Club of Wangaratta Book Fair initiative started early in 2017. The festival now moves back to June for 2020, the weekend of Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 June. More than 40,000 books have been donated from the local community and the Fair continues to raise significant funds for community projects.

In 2018 Rotary significantly expanded the scope of the original Book Fair project to incorporate a Literary Festival and the Wang Lit Fest and Book Fair will continue to develop in 2020 and will again feature:

  • Wangaratta Young Writers Award for all young people between the ages of 10-19. The award encourages the development of capacity and imagination through writing. Recognising the categories of Prose, Poetry or Song Lyrics and writing for a Digital Format the awards will be presented at a post Wang Lit Fest celebration.
  • Visiting Writers presentations and workshops, has been organised and jointly sponsored by BOOKtique the Wangaratta Library.
  • Retro Café
