Summer Lovin’ – Muriel’s Wedding

Orange Open Air’s Summer Lovin series kicks off in Porpoise Spit, with the iconic Australian romantic comedy Muriel’s Wedding, starring Toni Collette and Rachel Griffiths.

Bring a picnic to the beautiful Botanic Gardens and settle in for the nuptials of Chook and Tania, a girls’ trip to Hibiscus Island and of course Muriel’s own wedding to South African swim star David Van Arkle. 

Don your best wedding dress, banana bra or ABBA costume for Orange Open Air’s Fashion on the Field competition that will be one for the ages. 

A perfect way to spend a summer night in February.

Halloween 2020 – Orange Open Air

Family Friendly Event –

Under the glow of the blue moon on Halloween this year, families headed out to Blood Orange; the inaugural Orange Open Air film event, for a fun and spooky screening of the must watch 1993 classic; Hocus Pocus. The movie was a great choice and had the entire family audience glued with the special effects and amazing costumes.

Central West Mums was proud to sponsor the costume competition and the effort that both children and their families put in was overwhelming. It was tricky to choose a runner up and winner.

Spilt Milk Bar created a signature flavour of pumpkin spice with choc chip on the evening, and OOA ensured that there were plenty of candy, popcorn and some trick or treat activities to entertain the kids.

We look forward to more events from Orange Open Air, so stay tuned by checking here.

Check out some of the amazing costumes on the night in our gallery; can you spot the winner?


Blood Orange

A Halloween Movie Event for the whole family! 

Don’t be scared, be scary! 

That’s the advice from Orange Open Air (OOA) who will host family-friendly open-air film event Blood Orange on Saturday 31 October

Blood Orange will feature a Halloween special beginning at 7 pm on Saturday, October 31 (Movie at 7.30 pm) Light snacks and refreshments will be available with local street food vans, and a signature ice-cream from Spilt Milk. There will also be a costume competition with prizes generously donated by Central West Mums.

Orange Open Air plans to host a collection of cultural and wellbeing events across the Central West villages and the regional city of Orange NSW celebrating fresh air, open spaces, and encouraging human connection with nature and each other through the arts and outdoor activity.

Thanks to a generous donation from Newcrest as part of its COVID grant program, Orange Open Air has purchased the infrastructure to plan a broad range of accessible, inclusive events across the region showcasing the arts and injecting tourism dollars into the local economy. 

“This first event is a great introduction to how events, entertainment and the arts can be enjoyed through Orange Open Air.”

With an equally atmospheric wet weather venue in place, the team is confident the night will be an experience no one young or old will forget.

Tickets are limited and family packages are available with a trick or treat bucket on offer too! 

Proudly Supported by Newcrest, Orange Regional Arts Foundation, Orange City Council and Central West Mums.
