Welcome

On the weekend of October 25-27, 2019 more than 50 acts will entertain you on this magical escape from everyday life. Don’t miss out on North Queensland’s best kept secret that has been a firm favourite for years, all just over an hour’s drive from Cairns. Come for the day or camp for the three-day weekend! Music spills from numerous marquees and permanent buildings; colourful markets add vibrancy and delight; delicious aromas waft over the township; and everywhere are the sights and sounds of happy people enjoying a fabulous weekend experience.

Filled with talented musicians, chances to try out new things and performances with a difference, we’re looking forward to welcoming you into our community. The vibrant historic township of Yungaburra is a joy for visitors and audiences. Stroll from venue to venue to catch the many facets of 2019 Tablelands Folk Festival. If you’ve never been to the festival before, prepare yourself for a rollicking good time!

Festival Early-bird weekend tickets go on sale from August 1
