About the festival:

The Canterbury Folk Music Festival is an annual event, held over the Easter Break and facilitates a wonderful family orientated music festival promoting family relaxation, music and the arts.

Our aim is to provide a safe, friendly family environment and a wide range of music, concerts, educational workshops and artistic entertainment for the whole family. Children too are encouraged to perform.

This is a family orientated event, open to the public, for Cantabrians to come along, relax, share, perform and enjoy.

Attendees of all age groups share a common love of multi-genre music, and not all are musicians.

Camping, catering, bathroom and cooking facilities are available onsite. Many come just to enjoy the friendship, fun, music, relaxation and friendly atmosphere this weekend brings.
