Cygnet Folk Festival
Celebrate and enjoy the music of mainland and international folk performers as the pubs, halls, cafes, parks and streets of Cygnet come alive with music and dance.
Cygnet Folk Festival has developed a reputation as one of the premier cultural events in Tasmania's arts calendar. Every year in the second weekend in January, the small village of Cygnet, situated in the Huon Valley nestled in the picturesque bay of Port Cygnet, presents a tremendous variety of music, dance, and related arts, over three wonderful days.
Celebrate and enjoy the music of mainland and international folk performers as the pubs, halls, cafes, parks and streets of Cygnet come alive with music and dance. With so many venues the festival allows for a range of concerts, workshops, children's events, sessions and dances, the whole village takes on an open-air festival atmosphere.
The programme features a mix of talented artists including local Tasmanians, mainland Australia and International guests.

Come down before the festival, or stay on after. Cygnet is located in a very beautiful area of Tasmania, and makes an ideal base for exploring this unique part of the world when the music has finished. Enjoy the spectacular local countryside between Port Cygnet and the Huon River with scenic views to the Hartz mountains and beyond. Visit some of the excellent wineries/vineyards close by, and sample their produce. Cygnet has art and craft shops, a gallery and a local history museum as well.
