This year marks a decade of the Pineapple Lounge serving juicy beats and equally as juicy Shampine. Whether you are a newfound Woodfordian or have a collection of memories from this slice of festival paradise, we invite you to join us in the celebrations. The Pineapple Lounge is loved by many, with its billowy, soft and relaxing corners.
Walking into Greta Hartley’s stall, Munay Designs, is a bit like entering a mermaid’s treasure trove. The Sunshine Coast local has been creating jewellery for many moons now. Her handcrafted jewels are made with crystals, sterling silver, hill tribe silver, stones, shells, as well as with purpose and lashings of love. Greta draws her design inspiration from time spent in the sunny parts of the world, flitting between Australia and Thailand throughout the year.
Every year, we make it our mission to fill the land of Woodfordia with beautiful spaces; magical nooks and crannies to explore that ignite the imagination. The Sacred Union Labyrinth is one of said spaces. Robin Clayfield is the creative soul behind this beloved festival feature and sat down with Claire Meraki at last year’s festival to discuss the inception of her wonderful labyrinth and share her Woodfordian journey.
A feast for your noodle, this year’s Speakers and Ideas programme features 100+ inspiring, witty and downright remarkable people, covering everything from the environment, politics and government, social justice, health, death, business, education, music and matters concerning Indigenous Australia. We hope it challenges, inspires and exhilarates you as much as it does us. Here’s to spending our New Year period in celebration, contemplation and discussion.
Woodford Folk Festival can be any number of things: a wellness retreat, a food safari, a musical tour, a fairground, a theatre, a circus, an art school or a comedy club. There’s something for everyone, even the littlest ones. Lovingly wrapped in the arms of the folk festival, lies the Children’s Festival – a bright, eye-widening wonderland.
