Dorrigo Folk and Bluegrass Festival

The Dorrigo Folk & Bluegrass Festival is now one of the Major Events in Dorrigo. We have over 3,000 patrons from all over the country, many of whom have been coming since the festival’s inception. Our line-up for the last 5 years has consisted of 50+ bands, local, National and International. The Festival has been nurtured to a size where it is able to continue yet still holds a very authentic and homely atmosphere. The Festival Committee is proud that we’re able to present the finest traditional, contemporary and acoustic music.

The Dorrigo Folk & Bluegrass Festival is held at the Dorrigo Showgrounds on Gumbaynggirr Country, a 5 minute drive from the Dorrigo National Park and Rainforest. We are lucky to be set in the area of World Heritage Listed Gondwana rainforest. The festival is held in Spring every year over the last weekend of October, when nature is at its finest and you can enjoy a fresh dip or a stroll in the green hills.
