Such was the mix of people from young to old, dyed-in-the-wool folkies, new folkies, and people who had never heard of folkies or folk music/culture. Such was the friendly, welcoming attitude of the local and all who attended, that it was declared a resounding success. Since then it has been held every year, during February. For more information check out their website. Heaps of images from each event since the year 2000.

There is music, dance, poetry, story telling and much more. What do you need to bring? Friendship, voices, instruments, feet, family and friends, something to sleep in (tent/swag) or book into local accommodation, and a happy mood for a good weekend.
