We’re loading up the truck with hay bales, musicians and loads of fun activities from April to June. The entire Coffs region will come to life with a series of 7 unique and local pop-up events in Ulong, Coramba, Nana Glen, Red Rock and Toormina, bookended by two big celebrations in Coffs Harbour.
Bale Out! is a celebration of people, place and all that connects us with an emphasis on food, music and good old fashioned family friendly fun and activities.
With the catchcry of “live large and local!” communities across the greater Coffs area have grabbed hold of the idea with great enthusiasm, taking the opportunity to share and celebrate their local village identities, individual passions and community aspirations.
Join us for a modern take on the beloved old ‘greased pig’ competition or cheer on at the handcrafted boat races on the Orara River. Enjoy classical musicians on lush green river banks or visit the ‘Big Diggers’ giant machinery displays and the 100 motorbike ‘show and shine’. Finish off with a groove to the 200 live drummers pumping out African beats. Every event is brimming with local flavour and pride that will have you grinning from ear to ear.
Whether you’re wanting to crank up to excitement or just chill out and enjoy the entertainment, make this your go-to event these coming holidays .
Don’t forget to bring your own chair or picnic blanket.
Bale Out! kicks off this Saturday 3 April (Easter Saturday) with Coffs Beats and Eats – an exotic twilight food market and live drumming extravaganza featuring rhythms from across the globe including Samba Soul, Drum Fire, Djembe Star and Kabila Moja and Kaya Boom drummers.
Located at Brelsford Park and positioned right next door to Coffs’ biggest and most exciting playground, there’ll be non stop fun for the kids.
All Bale Out! events are free and everyone is welcome.
Proudly brought to you by Coffs Harbour City Council with support from NSW Government’s Summer Fund.
