Dorrigo Easter Arts Exhibition March / April 2021

Every Easter weekend the Arts Council of The Dorrigo runs the wildly popular Dorrigo Easter Arts Exhibition (DEAE). Since its inception in 1990 this has become a flagship event of the area, attracting over 2,000 visitors a year.

This event celebrates our area’s wonderful artistic talent. Exhibiting is open to everyone living on The Dorrigo Plateau, defined as the 2453 postcode.
The Plateau is a large area and includes the village communities of Maynard’s Plains at Mountain Top through to Dorrigo township,
Fernbrook and Deer Vale to Ebor in the west,
Cascade and Megan to the north-east,
North Dorrigo, Paddy’s Plains, Bostobrick, Hernani, and Dundurrabin to the north-west.
The DEAE brings together all these communities.
