DUE TO COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS MANY OF THE FOLLOWING PRE-PLANNED EVENTS WILL NOT PROCEED
We will endeavour to update these details as restrictions change.

Who doesn’t love a good festival or local show? The Bellingen Shire festivals are abundant and well supported by the local community. They also bring people from far and wide. It’s no surprise, as these events are staged in arguably one of the most stunning small town environments around. So come on, immerse yourself in creativity, learn in workshops, be amazed by the showcase of talent. They proudly cater to families, singles, young and the young-at-heart. You may wish to stay, eat-out and do a little local shopping while you’re here…
