They are inviting the community to launch celebrations at Nc2 at 62 Main Street Natimuk at 7pm.
Nati Frinj, which explores and promotes the rich artistry and creative talent of the region, runs from November 1 to 3 in Natimuk.
Festival director Hanna French said this year’s festival would again live up to expectations.

“This year the festival program is bursting with the eclectic mix of art, music and new experiences that this small festival is well known for,” she said.
“The Nati Frinj Biennale has been running in Natimuk since 2000 and has become recognised as a festival that delivers innovative and outstanding art experiences for audiences from across Australia.”
Ms French said this year’s festival would feature a mix of new works and old festival favourites.
“From the incredible Styckx Theatre Playground, presented in a huge specially designed bamboo structure, and Bee-Sharp Honeybee show on the silos, to the The Great Natimuk Clothes Swap and Silent Disco Walking Tour, Nati Frinj showcases the works of local and invited artists to the wider community,” she said.
“The Nati Frinj is a festival that delivers something for everyone and celebrates the creative heart of this extraordinary place.”
Ms French said the festival would include a broad mix of attractions from family-friendly shows such as Sid Secret – The Spy without a Clue and Storytime at The Thing, to the Gin Palace for a late-night sojourn ‘into the world of cocktails for night owls’.
There is also a dance extravaganza with the Real Hot Bitches 80s Dance Troupe and other program highlights include the building of an Earth Oven – Djagua Rarkee – by Ron Marks, Afternoon Pick Me Up with The Wimmera Women’s Circus and the showing of a new work in the making by Melbourne-based Black Hole Theatre, called Vault.
“The affectionately known ‘Frinj’ offers a range of art experiences across the festival weekend,” Ms French said.
Online bookings for ticketed events will go on sale from 9am at natifrinj.com.
