Donate to the Festival
From modest beginnings in 1982, Cygnet Folk Festival has grown to become a hugely popular and highly acclaimed Tasmanian cultural event.

We are a not for profit organisation registered with the Australian Charities and Not For Profits Commission.

Every dollar we make is re-invested into bringing you next year's Festival.

We are over 98% self funded and bring over 400 performers to Cygnet from around Tasmania, Australia & overseas every year, and all of this is done by only two part time staff members plus our army of devoted volunteers!

We also work hard to do good things for the world by supporting young performers, cultivating Australian artists and creative works, keeping the Festival eco-friendly and working with local community groups to help them prosper.

Please make a donation today! 

On behalf of the staff and management committee of Huon Folk Inc, the presenters of the Cygnet Folk Festival - we wish you all the best of the season & thank you for your generous support of the Festival. We look forward to catching you in Cygnet 6 - 8 January 2017!
