Port Fairy Folk Festival has become a tradition for many over the Victoria Labour Day long weekend. Normally a quiet coastal town, the Port Fairy bursts to life with caravans, flags, craft stalls and music as Victoria farewells warm weather.
The festival is predominately a music festival, hosting hundreds of national and international acts. Whist it is the headline acts that attract the crowed, it is the previously unknown artists that often leave a lasting impression. Off-stage buskers and street performers entertain and craft markets line the streets creating an exciting, yet somehow still relaxing, atmosphere.
In 2013 the festival turns 37 and will be held over on the 9th, 10th 11th of March. The ongoing success of the festival is a tribute to the organisers, who year after year ensure the festival caters for everyone from toddlers to grandparents and everyone in between.
If you think the Festival is for you, than March is the perfect time to rent a car and explore the Great Ocean Road! Visit all the must sees, such as the Otway Rangers and the 12 Apostles on your way to the festival and before the colder winter months take hold.
