"The Uranquinty Folk Festival reminds us that there are still many decent people around. Families and friends who can enjoy a simple experience in a beautiful spot, where you make your own entertainment with like minded folk. Relaxing and rejuvenating, 'Quinty' can revive your soul and your faith in humanity". Danny Spooner - Patron

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

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

Camping (free) is at the showground which is where most of the action takes place. The only venue not located at the showground is the pub, a short walk (or drive) away. Vehicles are allowed in the campsite but please don't drive across the centre - it wrecks the cricket pitch.

Wood is provided for a number of bonfires around the camp site which serve as centres of warmth, fellowship and music well into the night.

Alcohol is permitted, but remember the festival is family-friendly.

Dogs are welcome but please keep them under close control and clean up after them. If you bring a dog this means you. Even if you've always brought your dog and never bothered before, it means you! ALL DOGS ON LEADS AT ALL TIMES AND CLEAN UP AFTER THEM! Transgressors will be handed over to the cheese police. You have been warned!

Breakfasts and dinners are available at the hall on sat and sun. Food is also available from the pub, the bakery and the takeaway, or you can cook your own.

Locals have been known to remark on how clean we leave the site when we go - your help in following that tradition will be most appreciated.

Tickets, wristbands and Performers' information are available for Performers and patrons at the Uranquinty Hotel on Friday night and at the Hall during the weekend.
