The River Folk Festival

Festivals and Celebrations

30 Sep 2022 to 2 Oct 2022 Annual Event

The River Folk Festival returns to the Yarra Valley in 2022.

Hosted across multiple venues and stages throughout the Warburton township, The River Folk Festival is a boutique three-day arts, music and cultural festival featuring international, national, regional and local performing artists in a curated program over three days, and is a vibrant celebration of place, diverse culture, and creativity.

Now in its third year, The River Folk Festival will be presenting a stellar program of performing artists over the weekend, featuring co-headliners from Victoria and interstate – including festival favourites The Northern Folk (VIC), multi award-winning Indigenous duo Gina Williams & Guy Ghouse (WA), and one of the most exciting gypsy-jazz outfits in Australia, Cigány Weaver (QLD), alongside a host of local and regional highlights.

Patrons can expect a diverse range of programming across different venues, including an Opening Night Showcase Concert in The Arts Centre, Warburton, to kick off the event on Friday; the Sisters of Song Women’s Showcase, celebrating women in music; the iconic Valley Market, Warburton, featuring local and ethical artisan goods; and a dedicated Children’s Space.

Early Bird Tickets are sold out. Second Round Tickets are on sale now.
