The National Folk Festival held at Exhibition Park, Canberra

by Kathleen Russell

Janelle and Kate enjoyed a lovely day out at The National Folk Festival held at Exhibition Park Canberra over the Easter long weekend. As the name suggests the festival celebrates all that is Folk. Janelle and Kate spent the day walking through imaginative art displays and looking through the countless stalls for the perfect purchase.

There was music on every corner included buskers young and not so young, talented solo guitarists, drumming workshops, banjo’s and fiddles to get the toes tapping and so much more.  

The weather was perfect as large crowds swarmed through the gates ready to join in the fun. For food lovers there was an assortment of Food trucks of every description serving delicious morsels to hungry festival goers. Circus performers presenting amazing feats wowed the masses. 

Children’s performers had the kids and adults alike in stitches. Janelle bagged herself a bargain at the vintage clothing store and pick up a lovely winter scarf. Janelle and Kate enjoyed a delicious vegan ice-cream and enjoyed walking through the community art displays.

When asked what she enjoyed the most Janelle states that she loved the Folk dancing. The pair watched The Dividing Range Dancers in their beautifully designed outfits perform colonial Victorian and Tasmanian Dance’s such as Strip the Willow.
