Crowds to flock to Off-Grid Living Festival

March 21, 2024 BY

The Off-Grid Living Festival will have seven talks stages, more than 100 workshops and live demonstrations and 300 friendly exhibitors.

WITH energy bills on the rise, an unstable economy, and the climate crisis now in the forefront of the media, everyday people are seeking out a new and better way of living.

Going off-grid, future-proofing, self-sufficiency and being sustainable used to be “alternative” phases, but are now become part of the everyday vernacular.

With the sixth Off-Grid Living Festival just around the corner, people are getting excited about this great opportunity to find practical solutions and products, learn new skills to help achieve this dream lifestyle and connection with a like-minded community.

With the festival outgrowing its original location, it has now moved to a larger outdoor venue in Chiltern.

As the event takes over the Old Racecourse Reserve, the township will be transformed into a hub of sustainable activity for one weekend.

Attracting thousands of people from all over the country from off-grid veterans to those who are just starting to make the change, there’s something for everyone.

With tickets sold as far away as Western Australia and Darwin, it’s easy to see just how sought-after these topics are and how unique this event is.

The festival covers everything from the latest in renewable energy and electric transport for those who are interested in high-tech solutions through to back-to-basics skills for those looking to live a low impact life of simplicity.

One of the unique aspects of this festival is its ability to bring together the best from the past, present, and even a glimpse into the future.

With no pre-defined expectation of what “off-grid living” must be, the event makes people feel welcome to approach these topics from any point of view.

At this event, people don’t just talk about the problems, they offer practical and achievable solutions in many formats.

This is an interactive weekend with seven talks stages, more than 100 workshops and live demonstrations, 300 friendly exhibitors that are open to chatting about their products, lifestyles and skills and plenty of great food, entertainment and fun activities for the whole family to enjoy.

By combining education and entertainment, this event appeals to people from all-walks of life and empowers them to take their energy needs into their own hands, transition to sustainable lifestyles, build self-sufficiency skills and get off the grid.

The Off-Grid Living Festival will be held at Chiltern Racecourse and Recreation Reserve, Chiltern, Victoria on April 6 and April 7 (9am-5pm daily).
