Illawarra Folk Festival

Nestled in the northern Illawarra escarpment at Bulli, the Illawarra Folk Festival presents approximately 150 performers over 4 days. Performers, volunteers and audiences alike continue to return to our festival to experience and participate in the diversity of music and performances, and enjoy the intimate, vibrant, community atmosphere the festival has become renowned for. As well as performances by some of the best national and international traditional acts, the program features a two day intensive folk school, workshops, sessions, dancing, the Youth Folk Traditions awards, instrument makers, poet’s breakfasts, the famous Mediterranean Lunch, the infamous Tripe Dinner and beautiful international cuisine and craft stalls. The 36th Illawarra Folk Festival will be held from 20-22 January 2023 at the Bulli Showground located on the Princes Highway and the end of the Grand Pacific Drive.
