Canterbury Folk FestivalA Family Festival of Music
There are multiple unpowered tent sites scattered throughout the facility.
You can choose between quiet seclusion, evening or morning sun, or pitch your ‘tent with a view”!!
Most people camping in their tents choose to be by the main toilet/ shower / kitchen facility building.
This building also has a small lounge attached to it, and is ideal for socialising and family use, or you can choose quiet seclusion nestled among the trees..
Sun or shade, the sound of rustling trees, the flowing river, and sweet music… the choices are endless..
All tent sites are close to the bathroom and kitchen facilities.
Unpowered tent sites are free with your weekend pass fees (unlimited unpowered sites available) and powered tent sites cost $20 in addition to your weekend pass fees (limited powered sites available).
