Woodford Folk Festival
I first came as a volunteer, was part of online ticketing, got an idea of Woodford and was hooked. The art and sculptures are really inspiring, the bamboo structures make me feel part of something really special. I feel blessed to be around the art.
We owe the motor vehicle so much. It’s liberated us from the tyranny of distance, given us freedom and the ability to expand our horizons, and inspired some of the best rock songs ever (all by Chuck Berry).
Now in its 33rd year, there are many friendly faces returning to Woodfordia. Yet even the most seasoned Woodfordians sometimes forgets to pack a few items essential for the best possible experience.
Each year, more than 2,600 volunteers help transform the 500-acre festival site at Woodfordia into a fully functioning pop-up town the size of a regional centre like Lismore – and some of the more unusual jobs to help make it all happen are still up for grabs!
