Cygnet Folk Festival
From the 6th - 8th of January 2017 the vibrant country town of Cygnet will again play host to the annual Cygnet Folk Festival - Tasmania's leading celebration of folk and world music, dance, poetry, performance art, food and culture! In its 35th year, this iconic Festival is very highly regarded by musicians and festivalgoers from all over Australia and overseas, and competition to come to Cygnet is at an all time high among performers.
The incredible talent of local, interstate and international artists is celebrated over the January weekend and we are proud that so many amazing performers and festivalgoers take part in what the Festival has to offer each year.
Set in the picturesque Huon Valley countryside, the Festival has the advantage of being only an hour's drive away from cosmopolitan state capital Hobart and attracts thousands of visitors every year. A rich cultural community event, the Festival provides entertainment to a wide audience of Festival attendees, making people smile, providing a springboard for young musicians, opportunities for local businesses to showcase the region's superb home grown produce and artisan skills, and the flowering of new friendships.
