Port Fairy FF

Port Fairy Folk Festival

The Port Fairy Folk Festival is a popular annual four-day music festival based in the historic fishing village of Port Fairy in Victoria - and is one of Australia's biggest folk music festivals.

Traditionally staged during the local Labour Day long weekend (the first Friday each March), the first event was held in December 1977, and has been an annual fixture ever since.

At first concentrating on Irish traditional music and culture, the focus has subsequently broadened to include a diverse range of styles and influences, from Blues/Roots to World Music.
