Organisers of the Big Picture Fest 2019 are urging art lovers to book their FREE personalised walking tours sooner rather than later — with over 50 per cent of spaces already booked up.
Walking tours run twice daily from the Frankston Library Forecourt and offer participants the opportunity to view international, national and local street artists in action, and hear about the inspiration behind their incredible works.
Tours take approximately 90 minutes and weave their way through some of Frankston City coolest back streets and laneways. Incorporating artworks from the 2018 and 2019 festivals, there’s really no better way to take in this year’s event than with your FREE personalised tour.
The Big Picture Fest 2019 runs from Friday 22 to Sunday 24 March and kicks off with a FREE Block Party event in Steibel Place and Gallery Lane (city centre) on the Friday night. Chill to live music, taste local craft beer and wine and watch in awe at the live street art demonstration.

The Big Picture Fest will be overseen by Brecknock Consulting and Joel Van Moore, the creator of the popular Port Adelaide Wonderwalls Festival, and is being funded through the city’s Street Art Masterplan, part of the Victorian Government’s commitment to revitalise Frankston City and Frankston City Council’s laneway activation initiatives.
