Abstract Scholars of economics, industrial systems and organisations have extensively examined the application of innovation theory in numerous economic environments and yet this adaptation has not been common in sociology. This paper reviews innovation theory in the context of a regional festival in NSW, Australia, where research has demonstrated the links between interactive network relationships and innovation. The research demonstrates an abundance of innovative activity that can occur at a regional event both from an economic and social perspective. It is suggested that a holistic typology may be useful for researchers and regional planners to more closely examine the characteristics of innovation occurring in a regional community.
