The historic and picturesque village of Cobargo on the Far South Coast of New South Wales, Australia, has been home to the Cobargo Folk Festival for the past 22 years.

More than 6000 folk music lovers converge on the Cobargo Showground over the first weekend in March to enjoy great music, workshops, spoken word events and to reconnect with family and friends, in a beautiful rural setting. Hosted by the Yuin Folk Club Inc, the festival is a celebration of folk music and folk culture from Australia and the world.

Presented by the Yuin Folk Club, the Cobargo Folk Festival is organised entirely by unpaid volunteers from the local community, who are supported by some 250 additional volunteers who join us from all over the country at Festival time to help stage this awesome event. Any profits raised during the festival go back into the community and the festival. Funds are used to improve local community facilities, fund the festival build and the artistic program and provided as grant funding for music education and development projects in the region. 

Cobargo Folk Festival is run by community, for community.

The Yuin Folk Club acknowledges the Yuin people who are the traditional custodians of this land where we hold our Cobargo Folk Festival. Permission to use the name "Yuin" for our club was given by Yuin Elder Aunty Eileen Morgan (dec) when we set up the club.
