Banjo Paterson Australia Poetry Festival Thursday 16 – Sunday 26 February 2017
Welcome to the fourth Banjo Paterson Australian Poetry Festival in its current form since the celebration of his 150th birthday in 2014. The Rotary Club of Orange has taken a lead role with Brand Orange and other community organisations in co-ordinating events that will be attractive to lovers of good old Australian entertainment. Bush poetry, school performances, professional entertainers, markets, golf, barbecues and camp oven cooking are some of the attractions. There is also the opportunity for community members and visitors to Orange to show their skills in poetry recital and musical entertainment.

Orange Food Week Friday 31 March – Sunday 9 April 2017
Orange F.O.O.D Week (Food of Orange District) is Australia’s longest running regional food festival and has been acclaimed as one of Australia’s top ten food festivals. It is held in the emerging cool-climate wine region of Orange in New South Wales, and was recently named one of the states’ premium events by Destination NSW.
Founded in 1991 by a group of passionate local foodies and vignerons, F.O.O.D Week was created with an ethos of showcasing the region’s excellent fresh produce and award-winning cool climate wine, as well to provide a platform for its clever food producers, providores and innovative chefs, cooks and caterers.
The festival incorporates a number of signature events designed to appeal to both residents and visitors, as well as over 100 satellite events held by local restaurants, cafes and wineries – resulting in a ten-day feast of the senses that you won’t want to miss, and will keep coming back for again and again.
