We are pleased to announce that we have been able to reschedule the festival to November 2020, we look forward to offering a music festival that will inspire, offer the celebration of music and community that we so need to restore our souls with the joy of music and fellowship. Please mark your calendars now for this weekend to renew our well-being with heartwarming live music.
2020 will offer a festival that will bring you both traditional and contemporary folk musicians to whet your appetite for vibrant acoustic live music. The Canterbury Folk Festival looks forward to building on our 45 years of success with growing audiences, greater diversity in the programme, great dances and programming, a family-friendly, welcoming atmosphere where participation is encouraged.
Guest artists will share their creativity on stage; you will also have the opportunity to personally acquire finer skills by attending their workshop, and join in the “blind date” to perform on stage with at least one of the guest artists.
You might want to participate in one of the blackboard concerts or workshops or rather jam in one of the chilled out late-night jams which ensure the party at the festival goes long past the end of scheduled performances.
There will be tasty food choices for you when you are hungry, and when you need a coffee, all you have to do is step up to the coffee cart.
To fully absorb the friendly family vibe, book a bunk room, or camp for the weekend. Immerse yourself in the centre of things, or choose a quiet camping area. If you are not a natural camper, the Hurunui district offers a diverse range of accommodation options.
From folk to blues, bluegrass to the world and everything in between we’re sure that this iconic folk music event will put a smile on your face.
Please mark your calendar to join our very special family friendly community created in a weekend of lively, for foot-tappingly contagious entertainment.
