A Special Community – A Beautiful Part of the World
This weekend 27-29 Feb would have seen the staging of the 26th Cobargo Folk Festival in the historic and picturesque village of Cobargo on the Far South Coast of New South Wales. Many of us, I’m sure would have been there too if COVID hadn’t changed our plans.

In a recent Facebook post the organisers wrote, “In the world of normal, today the wonderful organisers and volunteers would be tired but excited as we kicked off the 26th Cobargo Folk Festival. It would have been a few days of great music, dance, song and tomfoolery, where we mixed with old friends and made new ones in this beautiful part of the world.” And oh, how we’re missing those few days, not only at Cobargo but at all our regional folk festivals around NSW.
Cobargo though has been particularly hard hit with their 2020 Festival cancelled due to the devastating fires that ravaged through the country destroying their beautiful town, wildlife, vegetation and property. But, they are a resilient mob and are already planning for the 2022 event and, in the meantime are looking to hold a series of concerts in the coming months. So, watch this space. Right now they are inviting people to share their favourite Cobargo photos on Facebook so use the link below to have a look or share your favourite memory.
