Dear friends of the Cygnet Folk Festival
Well, what a ride we’ve all been on so far this year!! As you know, we’ve sadly cancelled the 2021 festival as a weekend event. However, 2022 is our 40th anniversary so we are looking forward to a HUGE celebration!!!
“The History Project” acknowledges all the workers, performers and lovers of the festival from the last 40 years. You can upload photos, text or a short audio recollection of festivals past and we’d love to hear from you!!
This project is supported by a Rapid Response Grant from the Huon Valley Council.
Also, if you have any old video from past events, you can either upload them to YouTube and email us the link, or perhaps add them to a USB memory stick and mail it to: 29 Macfarlane Street, South Hobart Tasmania 7004. If you have old super 8 or other film footage, please contact us.
We are thrilled to announce that we’ve been very generously funded by APRA AMCOS to produce our song and tune competition entirely online this year.
For 2020 only (as a COVID support) we are able to offer prizes for best song and best tune of up to $1500.00 (first prize unless a tied result)
Situated 50 minutes drive south of Hobart in the historic port town of Cygnet, Tasmania, Port Cygnet Cannery is the home of Cannery Kitchen and Bar and Sailor Seeks Horse winery and cellar door. The building was formerly an apple canning factory and is now evolving into a hub of food, beverage and agricultural businesses.
