THE annual Numeralla Folk Festival is held on the Australia Day long weekend.
It is the last traditional "free" folk festival left in Australia, there are no tickets - entertainment and camping are completely free.
Come and join in for a long weekend of music, poetry, dance, markets, dips in the river, yarns around the campfire and convivial conversation. Highlights of the festival include bush dances, a fun kid's program, dance and music workshops (all ages and no prior skill required), and the blackboard concert - seasoned professionals and budding artists can chalk their name up to play a couple of songs, recite a poem, spin a yarn or entertain the crowd in any creative way.
Sunday morning's Country Markets showcase local sustainable produce. Amble about to sample the fresh food delights, pick up a bargain, listen to some Numeralla bluegrass music, or have a cuppa.
If all this sounds too hectic, you can simply relax by the river and enjoy the music and the beautiful scenery, or there is always a yarn or a music session happening at the hall or the campsites.
This week there be a Youth Showcase on the Friday night. Young musicians from the region will be displaying their musical mastery while the audience relaxes with some nibbles, a meal from the kitchen, or a glass of favourite cheer from the bar.
