ArtWalk 2020 in Port Macquarie

Port Macquarie Knows Art

In its 4th year of operation – albeit being derailed by COVID – the Port Macquarie Hastings Council have decided to pull together an incredible line-up of COVID-safe activities – all in the name of art.  If you are a Port Macquarie local or a very-welcome guest to our region these upcoming September / October school holidays then you are in for a feast of artistic inspiration!

Cassegrain is proud to be involved – hosting six ‘Satellite Events’ right here at the winery.  Of course, we are taking the liberty in sharing our art – in the form of pieces of art all of which have taken months and years to create.  Each event will feature the opportunity to try some unique wines, whilst indulging in creative expansion.  Partnering with Paint Your Town and Arthouse Industries – these artists will take attendees on a variety of creative journeys, teaching and guiding you through memorable experiences all within the comfort and luxury of our private experience room at Cassegrain – the Vin de Salle.

ArtWalk in the Port Macquarie CBD

Running from the 1st of October to the 8th of October there is plenty to see and experience.  The main event of the program will be based in town – around 12-15 minutes drive from the winery.  Each day and night there are hosted exhibitions and art showcased in shopfronts all over town.  Not forgetting our other town-centres – Wauchope and Laurieton will also be showcasing art day and night throughout the week.  For those visiting, you can literally stay anywhere in town and be less than 10-15 minutes away from some memorable experiences for those interested in a variety of art forms.

ArtWalk 2020

In a year that we’ve had so much uncertainty and negativity, we’re grateful for the hard work of staff to put this event on.  Here’s to hoping that in a few weeks we are inspired, pleasantly distracted and thoroughly stocked with new art (and wine)!  We’re grateful for the COVID-safe atmosphere that’s being ensured and we ask that all those attending the event maintain social distancing protocols and where possible, please wear a mask.  Here at Cassegrain, we do use Guest HQ to log everyone in that is visiting.  If you have had any cold or flu-like symptoms we ask that you please refrain from visiting the winery, but otherwise you are more than welcome!

We look forward to hosting any and all visitors to the winery during this period and we’ll be open 7 days a week!  Thanks for supporting our region and we’re hoping
