Performers will take to the streets on Friday night to kick-start the final installment of the Port Fairy Winter Weekends for 2019.
For the first time, the winter weekends program will feature a buskers competition, with $500 worth of prizes up for grabs.
Port Fairy Winter Weekends committee member Courtney Smith said buskers would be stationed throughout Sackville and Bank streets.
"One of the things we focus on is getting people out and about during winter," Ms Smith said.
"The businesses are doing late night shopping on Friday and the busking competition will add some extra atmosphere to the night.
"We have had plenty of interest in it so there will be a good variety of entertainers out on the street."
Warrnambool singer-songwriter Flynn Gurry will be on hand to judge the winner of the competition.
Also on Friday evening is the first of two Mad Hatter Tea Party's for the weekend. The other will be held on Saturday, with both events sold out.
The tea parties will be held at Saint John's Church Hall and will be immersive productions where high tea is mixed with interaction with Mad Hatter Tea Party characters.
"The response to the tea parties has been really exciting and we think those that are coming along will have a great night," Ms Smith said.
"We see this concept growing into a signature event for the winter weekends, along with already established favourites like the Dachshund Dash, the Party in the Church and our themed movie nights."
Other highlights from this weekend will include:
Theatre: A touring Melbourne theatre company will perform a production of Yes, Prime Minister at the Lecture Hall from 7.30pm on Friday night.
Music: Lovers of all things vinyl will be in their element of Saturday with a Vinyl Record Swap Meet to be held on Saturday from 1-5pm. The swap meet will be held at The Wharf.
"It will be great fun, there will be DJ's spinning tunes and the bar will be open so people can have a look around and a good day out at the same time," Ms Smith said.
Film: The Reardon Theatre will be the venue for the Port Fairy Adventure Film Festival. At 7pm on Saturday, the festival will show the best short adventure films from 2018.
Art: Denise Regan, Britt Gow and Karen Clarke will host a free marine debris art workshop at the RSL hall from 2-4pm on Sunday. The artists will supply plastic collected from Port Fairy beaches.
Party: The Port Fairy Winter Weekends will conclude on 5pm on Sunday with a closing party at The Wharf.
