Illawarra Folk Festival

Festivals and Celebrations

16 Jan 2020 to 19 Jan 2020

The Illawarra Folk Festival originated at Jamberoo in 1985, and has grown to be one of the largest festivals in Australia run entirely by volunteers.

Now nestled in the northern Illawarra escarpment at Bulli, the festival presents approximately 150 acts over four days. Performers, volunteers and audiences alike continue to return to the festival to experience and participate in the diversity of music and performances, and enjoy the intimate, vibrant, community atmosphere the festival has become renowned for.

As well as performances by some of the best national and international traditional acts, the program features a two day intensive folk school, workshops, sessions, dancing, the Youth Folk Traditions awards, instrument makers, spoken word events and beautiful international cuisine and craft stalls.
