Cygnet Folk Festival

Tasmania's premier Folk Music festival

About

Cygnet Folk Festival has developed a reputation as one of the premier cultural events in Tasmania’s arts calendar and one of Australia’s most iconic folk music festivals.

In the second weekend in January every year, the small village of Cygnet in the Huon Valley presents a tremendous variety of music, dance and workshops over three wonderful days. Cygnet has a population of less than 1 000 people, but for a small community, this Festival has lots of punch and is impressive in its size, scope and quality.

The pubs, halls, cafes, parks and streets of Cygnet come alive with music and dance as mainland and international folk performers converge on the town and visitors flock to share in the atmosphere. The Festival is a showcase of eclectic music genres, dance, poetry, masterclasses, kids’ entertainment, instrument maker’s showcase, food, wine, art and local handicrafts market all set in the breathtaking scenery of Tasmania’s Huon Valley.
