YES... Finally it really is almost time!
Applications to perform at #ourNFF will Open

The National Folk Festival aims to be a culturally relevant, creative and diverse event celebrating the folk arts in all their forms while keeping the Festival fresh and vibrant. If you have something to offer we'd love to hear from you.
Please note: 
We have a new management system so there will be changes. Please ensure you READ ALL the relevant information before starting your application.

 Our Stalls - Our Marketplace
We're starting the search for the stars of our beautiful festival village - the stallholders! Applications will open online from August 1. We want delicious food and drink, quality handmade and global wares, body products and curiosities unique. While we are always looking for something new and interesting, we also love to hear from old favourites. If you come across a great stall in your travels that you would love to see at next year's Festival ask them! Our stallholders come from far and wide, so let them know how great the nash is and inviote them to join the fun.
For any and all stalls enquiries, please email Jayne -
2019 Featured State/Territory
The featured State or Territory is a big part of the National Folk Festival and is inspired by the days when the National was held in a different location each year.  From last year we began pairing States and Territories on a four year cycle. 
We're especially looking for performers from our Big Fella (WA) and our Little Fella (ACT) to contribute to next year's program.
In 2019 we're featuring
Western Australia and Australian Capital Territory
