July school holidays are MASSIVE in the Central West when it comes to arts, heritage and creative activities.

Regional arts development organisation Arts OutWest have been extra busy loading all the activities to their online WHAT’S ON.

“It’s really reassuring to see this sudden bounty of school holidays activities return where things had been fairly quiet for the last two and a half years,” said Arts OutWest’s Maryanne Jaques.

“There’s more than 70 excellent things to do – and the list is growing. The offerings are wide too: little kids, big kids, crafts to films to festival stuff. A warning though, some – like the activities at Forbes Youth and Community Centre – have been booking out as soon as they’ve been announced so if bookings are needed, get in quick,” Maryanne added.

Find workshops, crafternoons, dinosaurs, special museum tours, gallery activities, a lantern parade, music performances, lots of film screenings, cultural days, festivals and more.

There’s lots of highlights but a few of the special ones include:

There’s also plenty of museums and galleries to visit and public at to spot. You can see what’s on offer across the region in Arts Outwest’s interactive Culture Maps Central NSW site.

Promoting arts and cultural events across the NSW Central West is part of Arts OutWest core program and cultural tourism focus.
