The Waimate Folk Music Festival (previously Whitestone Winter Folk Festival) is held every Queen’s Birthday Weekend (to include the first Monday in June) at Gunns Camp, Waimate, North Otago. Although small, the festival has been steadily growing in popularity since it began in 1994. Waimate Folk Festival is a great occasion for performers of all ages and skills, from the beginner to the seasoned professional.
Registration includes three nights’ accommodation (or camping, for the hardy) and continuous entertainment and workshops from Saturday morning to Sunday evening (and the wee hours of Monday). Day passes are also available.
Key events throughout the festival include the always popular Saturday night barn dance, and the Sunday night final concert, which features all of our guest, plus a selection of the best acts from the weekend.
