Yass Arts TrailIt’s happening again for the second year running and this year it’s even bigger, featuring the internationally renown to the not so internationally renown! The YASSarts Arts Trail will run over the 6 – 7 of November and is part of the overall CLASSIC YASS weekend which also includes the Celebration of Heritage Motoring and a feast of Open Gardens. YASSarts co-ordinator Kim Nelson instigated the concept of the three events combining and confesses he is a little worried about the monster it has become.

The cultural attractions are more varied this year and you can find out more by clicking here. Also, click on the image for a look at the Arts Trail Poster.
