The Rotary Club of Victor Harbor’s Annual Art Show is a very special event as it continues to grow in strength and popularity. In 2020 it will be the Rotary Club of Victor Harbor 41st Art Show and it has become an integral part of the culture of Victor Harbor and many people look forward each year to the event.

The Art Show is Australia’s largest outdoor art exhibition. It continues to break all records, with the sales of artwork in excess of $300,000, over 10,000 people attending the event over nine days viewing in excess of 1,600 paintings on display.

The Art Show is held in a marquee on Warland Reserve, Victor Harbor, SA during January each year during the towns’ peak tourism period. Over 300 paintings are couriered from interstate, recognising the event as a highly regarded art exhibition.

Become a Sponsor…

 The benefits of a show such as this are varied and many. Not only have raised over $1.5 million dollars for local, national and overseas projects, and we have given many artists the opportunity to display their talents and sell their work.
 The growing success of the Art Show can be attributed to the continuing support of our sponsors, volunteers, artists, The City of Victor Harbor and the local community. Such a large undertaking would not be possible without our sponsors.

Mission Statement

To provide an event that promotes both local and interstate artists allowing them the opportunity to display and sell their art work.

To enable the Rotary Club of Victor Harbor to raise funds to inject many thousands of dollars into our local community, to humanitarian projects overseas and to Australian Rotary Health, a Rotary initiative providing much needed grants, scholarships and research into a wide range of medical conditions and mental health for Australians.
