As the dust settles on a fabulous ‪#‎ourNFF we would like to thank everyone who joined us this Easter. From all corners of Australia and some from overseas you came, patrons, volunteers, performers, stallholders and supporters, and descended on Exhibition Park Canberra for the 50th edition of our National Folk Festival. The power of folk is in its ability to transcend age barriers and connect with audiences in unique and engaging ways. If 2016 was any indication the National Folk Festival is alive and well, offering an exciting alternative to mainstream music culture and, is still a significant and dedicated advocate for the folk arts. It was a privilege to welcome you all to celebrate this milestone event.
