Dorrigo Folk & Bluegrass Festival is an acoustic weekend of concerts, workshops, jamming, dancing and more, focused primarily on Old-Time, Bluegrass and Folk traditions.

A family friendly festival with something for everyone. We encourage participation from all ages and are dedicated to sharing our love of music. Dorrigo Folk & Bluegrass Festival Inc. would like to acknowledge that this festival is held on the traditional lands of the Gumbaynggirr people, and pay our respect to elders both past and present.

We hope that the year ahead finds you all on a gentler and proportional path where music weaves a strengthening tie between us all.

We look forward to presenting our  festival and hope your path may lead you to Dorrigo Mountain next October.

The last festival was once again an outstanding success and we would like to thank again everyone who helped to make it so.

Dorrigo Folk & Bluegrass Festival Inc. will continue to bring the very best of the folk, bluegrass and old-time worlds to the plateau. We also acknowledge and respect the importance of traditions and heritage, and the exploration of these genres that may sometimes be challenging but at the same time allows us to encompass our musicians as they explore new territories.
