History of The Orange Blossom Festival

From its beginnings as footpath and garden competition in 1959, to the beginning of an annual festival in 1969 to stimulate the social, cultural and sporting activities within the Shire, the Orange Blossom Festival has today grown to be one of Australia’s largest community owned and run festivals.

The Orange Blossom Festival’s name stems from The Hills Shire’s beginnings as a major citrus growing region from the 1800’s onwards. The Festival greatly promotes the community’s image, culture, and opportunities to the rest of Sydney and Australia as a whole as well as providing a valuable forum for local community fund-raising efforts. This makes the Orange Blossom Festival a fundamental element of our local community development, tourism and economic development strategies.

Bringing together local community based events under the one banner, offering residents and visitors a large variety of events:- including fairs, senior and youth activities, open days, sporting events, art and garden exhibitions, concerts, food fairs, information seminars, fireworks and much more.

The Festival has grown to become a pinnacle part of our Shire. As we are welcoming more and more new residents in the Shire, this Festival is an ideal platform to introduce them to what that is available for them to see and do, as well as share the vibrant community spirit our Shire is famous for.

The Festival is co-ordinated by Council in partnership with local community groups and organisations and is funded through sponsorship from local businesses.

The Hills Shire has an incredible volunteering spirit and a large volunteer network. Volunteers from throughout the community play a major role in The Orange Blossom Festival by including their events within the Festival calendar giving residents and visitors a diverse range of events to enjoy and provides community groups with a forum for fundraising. It takes hundreds of volunteers from various groups clubs and organisations all over the Shire.

These groups include service clubs, community organisations, schools, sporting clubs and special interest groups. Many dedicated people are willing to give up many hours of their own time to make these events a success.
