Preparing for BAF 2017!


Welcome to 2017 and the year of another Ballarat Apron Festival! Rest assured that while things may look quiet and calm, behind the scenes the BAF Committee is hard at work to bring you a very exciting Festival celebrating all things Apron!!

Be sure to stay connected to all our news by subscribing to our website (just scroll on down to the bottom of the screen), and also via Facebook, Instagram and Twitter – this year’s theme may be “A Day in the Life of an Apron in the 1950s”, but we are well and truly keeping you up to date across the social media board!
