For the first time, Orange will enjoy a new Winter Fire Festival from 3-5 August 2018. General Manger of Orange Region Tourism, Caddie Marshall, said that winter is the perfect time to showcase the Orange region in all its winter glory and has her fingers crossed for another dusting of snow.
“The Orange Winter Fire Festival is inspired by the Australian cracker night bonfire tradition and will include bonfires, char grilled feasts, star gazing from both European and Indigenous perspectives and blazing Sunday lunches in country pubs, cafes and restaurants,” said Ms Marshall.
“We can offer people an authentic country winter experience with crisp clear days, starry skies, hearty food, cosy fireplaces and elegant cool climate wines.”
The producers and venues are really turning up the heat and have designed some truly unique events including: Come wassailing with us at Canobolas Dance Hall, Molong Fire and Poetry at the Freemasons Hotel, De Salis Ancestral Dinner in Nashdale, Fires in the Sky at Dindima on Cargo Rd, ‘Is there anything out there?’ An astronomical journey at Nashdale Lane Vineyard, Mulled, Cured and Delicious at Montoro Wines, The Aussie Fire Buckets’ Camp
Oven Cook Off in Eugowra, Cosy Sunday Lunch at the Carcoar Royal Hotel and the Cargo Village Market Day.
