$10,000 For Dorrigo Festival
The Bellingen Shire Council has received a grant for the development of a number of major festivals within the Shire. One of the events to receive a funding boost from Government is the Dorrigo Folk and Bluegrass Festival. Council recently received a state government grant of $10,000 for its 2011 festival.
The funding was received by Council under the New South Wales State Government’s Regional Flagship Events Program with the 2011 Dorrigo Folk and Bluegrass Festival expected to attract upwards of 3,300 people.
The standard of the Dorrigo Festival had finally been recognised and it will give a real boost to the committee. It’s fantastic that regional and rural festivals are receiving some recognition of all the hard work that the volunteers put in – Cr Kerry Child, Dorrigo Shire Council.
