This festival is for men, women and children. For fathers, mothers and grandparents. This Fathers Day celebrate with the family at the world's first ever Fatherhood Festival right here in Bangalow at the showgrounds.

With Andrew Denton, Jimmy Little, Adrienne Burgess, David Leser and Sandy McCutcheon talking about fatherhood this festival will have something for everyone.

Play, cook, talk, sing, build, look, laugh, cry, smile, dance and eat.

At the Fatherhood Festival men and fathers can walk tall and be proud of what they bring to their families. This is about celebrating where we have come from and where we are going.

"...who can fail to recognise the massive social benefits of supporting fathers as well as mothers in what is likely to be the greatest adventure of their lives: being a parent."

Adrienne Burgess launched the Fatherhood Cd in Byron Bay last year, on Fathers Day.
