Blackwood Festival of Music and Culture celebrates music and culture in the beautiful mountain forest setting of Blackwood just an hour from Melbourne. It is a family friendly festival featuring diverse culture and music including Irish, Bluegrass, Country, Blues, Folk, Rockabilly as well as workshops, dance, demonstrations and a range of food and craft stalls.
The first Blackwood Festival of Music and Culture was held in 2014. The festival is organised by a volunteer committee operating as Blackwood Academy and Revue Incorporated (Incorporation number: A0052282). Members of the committee have been involved in playing at and organising old time and bluegrass festivals and events in Australia for over 25 years.
The aim of the festival is to share and enjoy great music in the beautiful setting of Blackwood town.
