The 500-acre block of land, lovingly known as Woodfordia, plays host to three main events throughout the year – Artisan Camp, The Planting Festival and Woodford Folk Festival. Whilst each differ in size and focus, they are united in their aim to invoke in the community a sense of wide-eyed-wonder, fostering curiosity, igniting imaginations, nurturing the environment and bringing people together.
Woodford Folk Festival
A six-day happening that closes out one year and welcomes the next, Woodford Folk Festival is home for lovers of music and dance, circus and cabaret, health and wellbeing, food and drink, arts and crafts and of course, life, in all its many glories.
The Planting Festival
Born of the original volunteers that began replanting the land back in 1997, The Planting has grown into a 3-day festival that boasts a generous array of workshops, musical talents, performers, speakers and food stalls, all underpinned with the desire to cherish and nurture the land at Woodfordia.
For four days of the year, an enthusiastic and generous bunch of master craftspeople descend on Woodfordia to share their skills, insights and experiences with an enthusiastic and curious bunch of Artisan campers.
Festival of Small Halls
A way of exploring this vast country in the spirit of hospitality and great fun, Festival of Small Halls is a series of tours that takes the best folk and contemporary artists performing at two of the country’s largest festivals and sends them on the road to play tiny halls in communities all over Australia.
