The Jane Austen Fest is held for three days. The first day, Friday, is registration, orientation, some workshops and lectures, and the Soirée for meet & greets. Saturday is usually when most of the workshops, speakers and classes are held. As well as the teas and Regency Ball. Sunday is Breakfast & Crumpets, lawn bowling, the Dora Canal Cruise, a few more lectures and workshops, and farewell.

If you are from out of town, plan to stay at one of our wonderful inns or bed & breakfasts in town. Make reservations early as they fill up quite fast.

Admission Registration starts November 1st.

When you arrive to the Fest, you must come to the Registration Center to confirm your registration, get information, etc. The Registration Center is located at the Donnelly Pavillion in the Annie Donnelly Park.
