The ultimate celebration of all things folk

The 52nd National Folk Festival offers five fun-filled days and nights of magical entertainment for all the family to enjoy!

Held during the Easter Long Weekend (Thursday 29 March to Monday 2 April 2018), the National Folk Festival will offer Canberra families a jam-packed program of more than 200 international and national acts!

That's 900 hours of entertainment across 20 stages - from acoustic to blues, roots, world, traditional and contemporary folk, bluegrass, Celtic, indie and country!

The award-winning festival plays host to a wide celebration of music, song and dance and transforms Exhibition Park into a purpose-built village with themed bars, food and market stalls, and roving circus performers and street musicians.

Its multi-disciplinary program is broad and innovative offering diverse concert experiences, a dedicated KidzFest, and a wide variety of hands-on immersive art, poetry, dancing and music experiences.

Come for the whole festival or just for a great day out! From traditional and contemporary music to the quirky and the unusual, the program is designed to inspire, enliven and entertain everyone. Start planning your ultimate festival experience today by heading to!
