La Trobe University is the major sponsor of the SheppARTon Festival.
The SheppARTon Festival provides a diverse range of cultural and artistic experiences to the Goulburn Valley region over the Labour Day long weekend.
The scope of SheppARTon is practically unlimited. Regular features include:
- musical performances
- painting exhibitions
- pottery and textile exhibitions
- film screenings
- poetry readings
- food and wine tastings
- a fun run.
The SheppARTon Festival really is all encompassing and all engrossing.
As the festival’s major sponsor, La Trobe relishes the opportunity to build its relationship with Shepparton and the surrounding community. The sponsorship also provides many opportunities for La Trobe students to undertake internships and involve themselves in festival events. SheppARTon attracts a significant amount of media attention for both Shepparton and La Trobe’s Shepparton campus.
