In 1998 it was decided to hold an annual festival to emphasise the importance of Bingara’s orange trees whilst celebrating Bingara’s cultural heritage. The Orange Festival provides an entertaining week of festivities for the community, surrounding district and visitors.
The festival features street markets, street parades, pageants, sporting and cultural activities and has grown enormously in stature since its inception. Now considered one of the major events on the Bingara community calendar, the event attracts crowds in excess of 1500.
Each year the bar is raised even higher, with the inclusion of new initiatives and each year a new theme is announced, keeping the festival fresh, innovative and attractive year after year. However, one thing that never changes, is the memory of those who have fallen and for whom the orange trees represent.
