The internationally renowned Woodford Folk Festival is held from 27 December through to New Year’s day. The festival site is Woodfordia, in a lush, picturesque valley framed by the Glasshouse Mountains, about 30 minutes drive south-west from Maleny, or an hour south of Noosa, or about an hour and a half from Brisbane.
This year, more than 2000 performers and 438 events are programmed featuring local, national and international guests. The artist line-up is amazing, there are workshops to suit all interests, and the Food Trail promises to be even more diverse and tantalising!
Did you know that this famous festival had its beginnings in 1987 in the Maleny Showgrounds? After eight years of growing popularity, the “Maleny Folk Festival” moved to its new site 5 km from Woodford (and gained its new name).
