45th Canterbury Folk Music Festival Easter 2020 | 10-13 April 2020

2020 will offer a festival that will bring you both traditional and
contemporary folk musicians to whet your appetite for vibrant acoustic
live music. The Canterbury Folk Festival looks forward to building on
our 45 years of success with growing audiences, greater diversity in the
programme, great dances and programming, a family-friendly, welcoming
atmosphere where participation is encouraged.
International and New Zealand guest artists will share their creativity
on stage; you will also have the opportunity to personally acquire finer
skills by attending their workshop, and join in the “blind date” to
perform on stage with at least one of the guest artists.

You might want to participate in one of the blackboard concerts or
workshops or rather jam in one of the chilled out late night jams which
ensure the party at the festival goes long past the end of scheduled
There will be tasty food choices for you when you are hungry, and when
you need a coffee, all you have to do is step up to the coffee cart.

To fully absorb the friendly family vibe, book a bunk room, or camp for
the weekend. Immerse yourself in the centre of things, or choose a quiet
camping area. If you are not a natural camper, the Hurunui district
offers a diverse range of accommodation options.
 From folk to blues, bluegrass to world and everything in between we’re
sure that this iconic folk music event will put a smile on your face.
Please mark your calendar to join our very special family friendly
community created in a weekend of lively, for foot-tappingly contagious
