General Information

The Bangalow BBQ and Bluegrass Festival is the ultimate in a fun family day out.

Great local food, awesome musicians and a ‘Sideshow Alley’ of kids games at just $2 a pop all day long!

What’s more, this fantastic event has been created in an effort to raise funds for local arts and culture so money raised from the event goes straight back into the community.

The main event takes place on DATE TBA in August  from 10am to 5pm in the  Bangalow Showgrounds. Ticket prices start at $50 and include a BBQ Judging form and Tasting Plate. Children under 18 are free. Family Passes start at $80 for Earlybird tickets which are on offer until 1 May!.

In the main oval will be great music and amazing barbecue fare to sample and enjoy.

Especially for the kids;  The Side Show Alley will be choc-a-bloc with all kinds of kids games stalls from Chocolate Toss, Wheel of Fortune, Human Fruit Machine and Hook A Duck to name but a few!

There are competitions too – a BBQ Cook-off with $1000 First Prize and a Pickers Competition for those who play guitar, banjo, mandolin or fiddle with $250 First Prize.

The Friday evening event is definitely worth a mention too even though it’s for age MA15+. At this year’s Festival they’re holding an oldtime music and comedy variety show from 6 -10pm at the A&I Hall. It’s sure to be a hoot with great barbecue food and over 70 artists entertaining you all evening long. All artists are volunteers and all proceeds go back into Original Music Artists Bursaries. With limited seating, it’s sure to sell out fast, so get your tickets soon.
