The Dorrigo Folk & Bluegrass Festival acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the land on which the festival meets, the Gumbaynggirr people, and pay their respects to Elders past, present and emerging.
Based in NSW, Australia near Gondwana Rainforests, the DF&BF is an acoustic weekend of concerts, workshops, jamming, dancing and more. Focused primarily on Old-Time, Bluegrass and Folk traditions, it is a family friendly Festival with something for everyone. We encourage participation from all ages and are dedicated to sharing our love of music. The Festival begins at 5:30pm on Friday and runs through to 5:30pm on Sunday. It is held on the last full weekend of October every year.
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
The Dorrigo Folk & Bluegrass Festival embraces the diverse origins of folk, bluegrass, old-time and old-time country music and we believe that diversity and inclusion are essential to the well-being and continued growth of these genres and the Festival.
At the Dorrigo Folk & Bluegrass Festival we encourage, embrace and celebrate the participation and involvement by people of all abilities, genders, orientations, identities, faiths, cultures, and backgrounds. We seek to practice inclusion and aim to be proactive about educating ourselves and others.
