Canterbury Folk Festival  | 15 – 18 April 2022

Waipara Adventure Centre, 137 Darnley Road, Waipara, Hurunui

Festival Update 

Kia ora,
After the government announced yesterday we have agreed, with regret, to cancel the 2022 Canterbury Folk Festival. It was always our intention to only run the festival at orange or green traffic light settings, and although the limit for indoor gatherings was raised, the festival was still not able to be run in a way that was viable.
All artists, volunteers, our venue operators at Waipara Adventure Centre, and of course the committee, have been incredibly flexible in letting us leave it this late before cancelling, in the hope that circumstances might have changed enough to allow us to run the festival.
Let’s hope this is the last event on the folk music calendar to be cancelled this year.
Our venue is already booked for next year – April 7th – April – so roll on Easter 2023.
