Canterbury Folk Festival  | 15 – 18 April 2022

Waipara Adventure Centre, 137 Darnley Road, Waipara, Hurunui

Happy New Year!
The Canterbury Folk Festival committee are already at work planning for the 2022 Festival which we will host as usual at Easter weekend April 15th – 18th.

There has been a lot of uncertainty for organisers of events and we would like to acknowledge those involved with festivals over the last 6 months who have had to cancel their events to keep our community safe.

We intend to run the Canterbury Folk Festival at Easter if we are at Green or Orange in the traffic light system – at Red there are no events allowed with more than 100 people and we would need to cancel or postpone.

Government legislation means that we will need to implement a vaccination certificate required for all artists, crew, contractors, and attendees who are eligible for vaccination. This does not necessarily reflect our personal wishes but is the only way we will be legally allowed to run the festival.

Tickets will be on sale from February, and we will be announcing our line-up before then – there has been a lot of uncertainty around when and how artists can tour the country, and a lot of changes to artists’ other performance commitments, so we appreciate everyone’s patience.
