The much-loved Orange Blossom Festival (OBF) will return to The Hills Shire in September 2024, with a new and exciting food event scheduled for Wisemans Ferry.

A Taste of Wisemans will pop up in Wisemans Ferry Park on Sunday 29 September, celebrating the best food, wine and produce from local businesses in the rural north of the Shire and along the Hawkesbury River.

The month-long celebration of The Hills Shire kicks off with the OBF Night Markets at Castle Hill Showground on Saturday 7 September, and continues with the OBF Parade at Rouse Hill Town Centre on Saturday 21 September.

Mayor of The Hills Shire Dr Peter Gangemi said Council was delighted to expand the OBF offering to three major events, supported by community-led favourites like the Kenthurst Fair and Rotary Club of Hills-Kellyville Garden Competition.

“Orange Blossom Festival is the largest annual event in The Hills, and I’m delighted to see it becoming bigger and better with an exciting new event at Wisemans Ferry,” Mayor Gangemi said.

“The OBF Night Markets will feature a very special guest performing live to a crowd of revellers at the Showground, who will also enjoy food trucks, rides, activations and much more.

“The OBF Parade will see thousands descend on Rouse Hill Town Centre to create a carnival-like atmosphere and a fun day out for the family.

“A Taste of Wisemans will be a foodie’s heaven, with local producers, wineries, distilleries, seafood merchants and food vendors offering an outstanding array of choices within the stunning surroundings of Wisemans Ferry Park.

“We look forward to releasing more details over the coming months, but please save the date and I look forward to seeing you at the Orange Blossom Festival in September.”

A range of OBF Associated Events organised and delivered by community groups will also be held throughout September as part of the month-long festival.
