|Nariel Creek Folk
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
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).
