Come together for a weekend of music, dance and workshops in beautiful Gunns Bush, Waimate. Featuring the always popular Saturday night barn-dance, and of course the glitz and glam, masquerade themed final night cabaret on Sunday evening including the highlight acts of the weekend.

Held every Queen’s Birthday Weekend (to include the first Monday in June); Waimate Folk Festival is a great occasion for performers of all ages and skills, from the beginner to the seasoned professional.
