About the festival...

The Auckland Folk Festival is an annual festival of music, song and dance for the whole family. It takes place on Auckland Anniversary Weekend at Kumeu Showground, northwest of Auckland.   The festival is organised by members of Devonport Folk Music Club, Titirangi Folk Music Club, Auckland Bluegrass & Traditional Old Time Country Music Club, The City of Auckland Morris Dancers, Gaidhealtachd, and Second Hand News.

Kumeu Showground is an ideal festival site, with a large flat camping area, plenty of parking, hot showers and both flush and portable toilets. On site catering is provided and off site there are shops and restaurants within walking distance.

In respone to requests, two recycling stations will be available on site this year. We encourage everyone to recycle and help us diminish the amount of rubbish that goes to the landfill. And of course, we encourage all festival-goers to take their rubbish and recyclables home!
