2010 Woodford Folk Festival

Even though it was a muddy affair in 2010, The kids really enjoyed stomping around our garden in their gum boots, feeding the chickens and the worms, and most importantly being instrumental in creating their own permaculture village.

A world of wonder is waiting: step through the gate and be carried into a breathtaking world of imagination and play.

Since the festival's humble beginnings in Maleny, we have held true to the belief in presenting a programme for children that they can jump into, roll around in, drink, smell and be covered with. The wish is that they come, have fun, learn something new, find giving and receiving in equal measure, and leave inspired.

As the Children's Festival has grown year by year, we've watched our youngest children flourish into young adults, sharing with the world, in part, those values and experiences that were part of that growing up.
