Made in Dorrigo Day - “Made in Dorrigo” was established to provide a showcase for the wealth of creative talent up on the Dorrigo plateau. The market is totally unique, because everything is locally handcrafted, designed, produced or grown exclusively by artists, crafts people, growers, gardeners
and makers who live on the Dorrigo plateau. Made in Dorrigo will be held on 2nd Saturday of July, December and March.
Dorrigo Markets - Local Community event featuring producers and artisans from the Dorrigo Plateau and Bellingen Shire. Dorrigo Community Markets are on the first Saturday of every month at Dorrigo Showground.
