The Wang Lit Fest and Book Fair grew from a Rotary Club of Wangaratta Book Fair initiative started early in 2017. Held over the Queen’s Birthday weekend in 2017 and 2018 the festival now moves to the weekend of Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 September 2019. 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 2019 and will again feature:
