THE NARROMINE DOLLY PARTON FESTIVAL COMMITTEE WITH THE BACKING OF NARROMINE SHIRE COUNCIL HAS MADE THE DECISION TO CANCEL THE DOLLY PARTON FESTIVAL TO BE HELD ON THE WEEKEND OF 17TH, 18TH AND 19TH OF APRIL 2020. FOLLOWING ADVICE FROM THE GOVERNMENT TO CANCEL MASS GATHERINGS OF OVER 500 PEOPLE THE COMMITTEE FELT THAT IT WAS NECESSARY TO ACT ON THIS ADVICE FOR THE SAFETY OF THE COMMUNITY.
ALL TICKETS THAT WERE PURCHASED VIA 123TIX WILL BE REFUNDED MINUS THE SERVICE FEE .
COUNTLESS HOURS HAVE BEEN SPENT BY VOLUNTEERS AND THE WIDER COMMUNITY TO GET TO WITHIN A MONTH OF SHOWCASING ALL THINGS DOLLY BUT THE GLOBAL CORONA PANDEMIC IS LIKE NOTHING WE HAVE SEEN IN OUR LIFETIME AND WE MUST STAND TOGETHER AND SUPPORT THIS DECISION AND SHOW UNITY.
WE WILL BE BIGGER AND STRONGER NEXT YEAR AND ASK YOU ALL TO UNDERSTAND THAT THIS DECISION WAS NOT MADE LIGHTLY.
OUR SHIRE HAS HAD A TOUGH FEW YEARS WITH DROUGHT AND NOW THIS VIRUS IS GOING TO TEST OUR STRENGTH.
STAY SAFE AND SANITIZE.

Narromine’s Dolly Festival is set to be the event of 2020! A jam packed program for April 2020 includes live music, street parade, family-friendly events and so much more! Dress as Dolly, or Kenny, come with a group of friends or pack the kids up for a weekend away.
Our beautiful town Narromine is set in the heart of the Macquarie Valley Central West NSW, on the banks of the Macquarie River. Located just 25 minutes west of Dubbo, there is plenty to keep you entertained in our region and why not help out a community who have been affected by the drought. See you in April!
