Uranquinty Folk Festival

Uranquinty Folk Festival is a small, family-orientated festival, 12 kilometres south of Wagga Wagga in southern NSW. Formed in 1970 by the Wagga Wagga Folk society, it is one of Australia’s oldest folk festivals.

At “Quinty” the emphasis is on participation, campfire & pub sessions, workshops, dances and blackboards. Concerts are held at the Uranquinty Hotel and the Oval, where we encourage new and/or unknown artists as well as old friends.
