The Moore Street Food, Music and Wine Festival and Rochester Art Exhibition will hold their events on the last weekend in April.
Festival organiser Paige Crouch said events coincidentally fell on the same day last year which proved to be a success.
Ms Crouch said she hoped the festival would draw locals and out-of-towners.
She confirmed Tyler Hudson would headline this year’s music and local artists would also perform.
Ms Crouch said the festival has been in contact with Campaspe Shire to seek a grant for safety barriers between the bars and Moore St.
She said music would play from noon and food platters and wine would be available.
Rochester Art exhibition organiser Judy Anderson said the exhibition would host its opening night
An Italian dinner will be held at Rochester Wine Tavern on Friday, April 25 at 7pm and an auction of artwork would take place.
Mrs Anderson said the $75 tickets were limited and allowed access to the opening night, dinner and exhibition.
The exhibition would run from 1pm to 4pm on the April 25 due to Anzac day and 10am to 4pm Saturday and Sunday.
Tickets for the opening and dinner are available at www.redhs.com.au
