We are thrilled to announce that the Cygnet Folk Festival has been successful in achieving funding from the Australia Council for the Arts to conduct a very special project “Sharing Culture through language and Song”
Each year the Festival reaches out to locals who can host performers across the Festival weekend. We need local bed-and-breakfast accommodation for interstate/overseas performers for the three nights of the Festival. Billeting is best suited to people living within the immediate Cygnet area or no more than a 15 minute drive to Cygnet. To say thanks for opening up your home to performers we will provide either an adult weekend pass or two day tickets. Those accommodating multiple performers may be entitled to an extra pass.
The Festival's fantastic reputation rests on our enthusiastic, resourceful, friendly volunteers: some come back to help year after year and their experience and loyalty is inspiring. Others just happen to be coming down to Tassie or down from Hobart and bring new energy, talents and experience from other events. Everyone's contribution is valuable!
The Cygnet Folk Festival offers a number of stall sites throughout the Festival Village in the heart of Cygnet. The stall locations are in Loongana Park, Mary St carpark (opposite Town Hall), the St James College quadrangle and The Paddock (Mary St next to the BP Service Station).
We would like to encourage applicants with a focus on local arts and produce.
The Cygnet Folk Festival strives for sustainability - tell us how you are working towards being environmentally friendly.
