The 2024 Fairbridge Festival has been cancelled.

Organisers FolkWorld Inc. made the announcement this week citing lagging ticket sales, increased production costs and insufficient volunteers.

President of FolkWorld Inc. Jane Aberdeen said the decision was heartbreaking for the Board and the team. 

“We carefully weighed up all risks, considered advice from staff about lagging tickets sales, increased costs and as important, insufficient volunteers, and decided the Festival could not proceed. We have worked tirelessly to identify potential solutions, and thank Festival Partner, the Shire of Murray, the state government and our membership for their ongoing collaboration," she said.

“We would like to extend this thanks to everyone who has supported the Festival and we look forward to sharing music, dance and camaraderie with you at our other events planned throughout the year and future festivals."

All ticket sales will be automatically refunded. 

Fairbridge Festival has been an annual event since 1993, but due to COVID and an issue with the original venue it has been cancelled for the past three years.
