The National Folk Festival is an Australian family-oriented celebration attended by over 50,000 people.
Winner of the National Qantas Australian Tourism Award for Best Festival in 2009, it features over 20 stages with vibrant world-class artists, ‘blackboard’ opportunities, workshops, craft, themed bars and cafes and delectable food. The festival is staged at Exhibition Park in Canberra (EPIC) every Easter from Easter Thursday - Easter Monday.
The festival was first held in Melbourne in 1967.〔Andrews, S. ("How our National Folk Festivals started," ) Victorian Folk Music Club Inc. Retrieved 16 January 2009.〕 - initiated by The Victorian Folk Music Club, The Monash Traditional Music Society, the Burwood Teachers Folk Club and performers Martin Wyndham Reed and Glen Tomasetti, it was inspired by the Newport Folk Festival in the United States.〔("History," ) National Folk Festival Website. Retrieved 16 January 2009.〕 From 1969 until 1991 the festival traveled interstate each year. It was hosted at least once in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Canberra, Brisbane, Fremantle, Alice Springs, Perth, Kurunda and Maleny. The increasing size of the festival made it harder for the hosting states to organise the festival every year, so since 1992 the festival has been held each year in Canberra, with a 'feature state' on the program - providing increased performance opportunities for artists from that state.〔("History," ) National Folk Festival Website.
