The St Albans Folk Festival is a three-day event that takes place in late April each year.
Here you’ll hear all types of traditional and contemporary folk and Australian bush music and music workshops, dances, poetry recitals and children’s activities.
St Albans Folk Festival 2024 Dates, Tickets, Program & Camping NSW
You can attend for just a day or stay and make it a camping trip for the three-day event. You can camp on the banks of the nearby Macdonald River. Please note that camping may incur a small fee and is not included in the price of your festival ticket. Camping facilities are also very basic but close to all the festival’s activities.
If you only want to attend for a day, check the festival program so you don’t miss out on any performances you want to see. While you’re in St Albans, make sure you have a beer at the Settlers Arms in St Albans village – one of Australia’s oldest pubs.
Be aware that there’s no mobile phone coverage in St Albans. It is where you can get away from it all and recharge your batteries. That’s part of the area’s charm and what makes it an ideal setting for a folk festival!
St Albans is a small, historic village on the Macdonald River about 94 kilometres northwest of the Sydney CBD. You can get there via the M2 or Old Northern Rd by road, and you’ll need to catch Wisemans Ferry as well.
