About the Folk Federation

Founded in 1970, we facilitate statewide development of the folk arts, dance and in particular folk music of all genres and ethnic diversity. Through affiliated folk clubs, festivals, interstate bodies and our membership, we link those interested in presenting folk to the widest possible audience.

Make sure you’re folk fed: join us!
