About the festival:

The Canterbury Folk Music Festival is an annual event, held over the Easter Break and facilitates a wonderful family orientated music festival promoting family relaxation, music and the arts.

Our aim is to provide a safe, friendly family environment and a wide range of music, concerts, educational workshops and artistic entertainment for the whole family. Children too are encouraged to perform.

This is a family orientated event, open to the public, for Cantabrians to come along, relax, share, perform and enjoy.

Attendees of all age groups share a common love of multi-genre music, and not all are musicians.
