The Mildura Country Music Festival is an annual Australian country music festival based in Mildura, Victoria. The 1994 event was held in October, which the Australian Country Music Ambassador, Kelly Tassone felt was "fast becoming a favourite festival with performers."[1] In 2005 it was sponsored by Telstra Countrywide. It focuses on independent country music artists (about 95 percent of performers in the Australian country music industry).[2]

In 2017 it is due to be held over ten days from late September to early October.[3]
