In my local area there is a festival called the folk festival. It’s held in Port Fairy which is around 20-25 drive from my house.
The festival is held in early March each year over the Labour Day long weekend.
The first festival was in December 1977, second one in December 1978, third one in December 1979 and the fourth in March 1980 continuing every March since then opting for the long weekend and the usually better weather. Since 1977 there have been over 2000 acts and about 8000 artists have appeared at the festival.
We sometimes go. We didn’t go this year but Dad did! It has great music (sometimes).
