Frances Folk Gathering 2020 Dates, Workshop Program & Schedule

All are in encouraged to participate in the festivities as there are only a couple of guest artists booked each year, with the visitors joining in to fill the festival with music and performance.

The program will include concerts which will run over the whole weekend in various venues around town. The main music events will commence in the main tent on Friday night and will consist of an opening night concert with a guest artist and local musicians performing.

There will also be competitions open to those in the audience with the wind, string and vocal categories and there are open and intermediate competitions. Each competitor gets around 4 minutes to impress the judges and the winners will take the home prize money.

There will also be a number of dancing workshops running throughout the festival. In previous years, they have included Celtic dancing as well as art exhibitions where you can view and purchase your favourite piece.

Tickets are not required, although some workshops will require registration in order to confirm interest and you need to register in order to be involved in competitions.

So come on down, bring your band, enter a competition, create a piece of art. There is so much to see and do at Frances Folk Gathering for a fun weekend away!
