The Saturday of the festival takes place in Commercial Road, Koroit's main street.

The road is closed off to traffic, with festival gates opening to the public at 9am, with a ticket purchased online required for entry.

Entertainment, including music and dance, then takes place within the festival arena, which includes the Village Green Stage, the Commercial Hotel and satellite venues the Koroit Theatre and Izzy's Restaurant.  

Street entertainment is also part of the fun, with quality singing groups, individuals and dancers providing plenty of sound and colour. 

The Kid's Area entertainment also runs during the day, with craft, food and drink stalls in operation.

The entertainment on the street and stages runs until around 6pm, with patrons wanting to kick-on having the option of doing so at one of the hotels and restaurants in the town.
