The City of Orange Eisteddfod provides performance opportunities in the form of competition for amateur community members. This Eisteddfod offers three disciplines, Speech & Drama, Dance and Vocal & Instrumental.
The Eisteddfod is held in August and September each year and runs for around five weeks. A variety of solo sections are offered as well as championships and scholarships. Group sections include dance groups, bands, choirs as well as school groups.
Each year Orange welcome competitors and their families from cities and towns around our area such as Bathurst, Dubbo, Parkes, Forbes and Cowra as well as competitors from Sydney, Newcastle and Canberra and many other areas.
The Orange Eisteddfod Committee endeavours to offer a friendly and efficiently run competition with professional adjudicators and quality performance venues.
Our motto is: “Learn and Grow Through Performance.”
