This year’s annual Bingara Regional Australia Bank Orange Festival will have festival goers dancing in the street as the event takes on a “Happy Days” theme, celebrating the nostalgia and music of the 50’s and 60’s.

The Festival which started in 1998 has now become an important part of Bingara’s Orange Tree Memorial tradition. This year’s festival is a must see for those who love rock n roll and the 50’s and 60s era, with screenings of 50’s and 60s’ show reels in the historic Roxy Theatre, retro stalls and fashion parade, car displays, rock n roll music, dance demonstrations and kids entertainment.

This year’s orange picking will take place on Friday 5th July with the festival the following day on Saturday 6th July.
