Big hearted Numeralla festival

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.
