Club Picnic

December, at a local outdoor venue, with a BBQ and music, singing, dancing and general fun.

 

 

Nariel Creek Folk Festival

From Boxing Day to New Year, at historical Nariel Creek, near Corryong, Northern Victoria. Lots of music and dancing, in a relaxing location (camping sites available).

The Nariel festival is one of the longest running folk festivals in Australia, and is probably the most relaxed as well. Most events are informal sessions which occur spontaneously at locations such as the Nariel Creek festival camping ground, or the nearby Colac Colac caravan park.

The few formal events are mainly dances, which feature mostly local performers and their guests. There is a formal concert (as formal as anything gets at Nariel creek) on New Year's Day afternoon. If you want to perform, just turn up and give your name to the MC (Note: there are no paid performers at Nariel).

Contact for the Festival:

   Jamie Molloy, 165 Harris Street, Corryong, Victoria 3707
