FRINGE EVENTS

The Bellingen Fine Music Festival Fringe program is growing and is aimed at enabling the festival to become a real part of the town over the weekend. Having the opportunity to attend events between concerts contributes to the Festival atmosphere and helps bring the town alive to the sound of music. 


Festival Celebration and Suppers

Before going to the evening concerts, why not enjoy food, drink and music in Maam Gaduying (Meeting Place) Park, just opposite the Bellingen Memorial Hall.   Musicians will whet your appetite for the evening performance while your hunger will be satisfied by tasty, reasonably priced meals served in the Senior Citizens Rooms adjacent to the park.  Wine and soft drink are also available.

Proceeds of all food and beverage sales will help fund the Bellingen Youth Orchestra and the Music Festival.
