Canterbury Folk Festival

A Family Festival of Music

Festival Programme

Check out where the workshops are placed on the programme .

It’s here! We proudly announce our festival programme which includes foot tapping folk and firm-favourites for this Easter’s festival, April 14-17 at Waipara Adventure Camp, North Canterbury
With this programme, we are honouring folk music by embracing the evolution of folk while also staying true to the traditions of our forty plus year festival. We are again fostering both the youth and ukulele elements within our festival which were so well supported and appreciated last year, alongside the much loved traditions. The new and old sit comfortably together. We hope that there is something on the schedule that offers you a new challenge, that you try something new and widen your potential.
