Viruses, Weather and Government Rules permitting, St Albans Folk Festival will resume in 2022 on the 22nd to 25th April. This incorporates Anzac day and is the last weekend of the currently scheduled school holidays.
It is intended that Performer Applications will initially be by invitation to those selected for the cancelled 2020 festival.
A new look website is currently under development, so look forward to changes in the interface.
2021 Festival Cancelled
It is with deep regret that the organisers have been obliged to cancel the 2021 festival. Covid continues to cause the imposition of rules that at the very least allow no certainty over travel and maximum gathering numbers.
Fingers crossed that a vaccine will allow a festival in 2022!
St Albans Folk Festival, held over a weekend close to Anzac Day, is home to quality Traditional & Contemporary Folk Music, Australian Bush Music, Music Sessions, Workshops, Dances, Poetry and Children's Activities. The event showcases local and international performers, song writers and musicians. The festival runs a market of food, produce and other stalls. Patrons travel for the day or camp on the banks of the McDonald River 20 kms from Wisemans Ferry in the beautiful Hawkesbury River area, North of Sydney and West of Gosford.
The village has one of the oldest pubs in Australia, the Settlers Arms and a Historical Cemetery.
