It’s coming! The internationally renowned Woodford Folk Festival, 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). Ticket allocation will be capped this year so best not take too long to book.
Still looking for somewhere to stay?
If you are lucky enough to be attending the festival and looking for somewhere to stay during or afterwards (a comfy bed and a bit of tranquillity after all the excitement!) – please give us a call – we are only 7 minutes from Maleny, and about 30 minutes from Woodfordia. We still have some availability. Call direct, mention WOODFORD, and special rates will apply!
