The next festival will now be held over the weekend of November 16 —18, 2018.
So, it rained. And the wind blew. And it happened last year too. We felt it and so did you. The result is we’re taking action.
After considering feedback from our wonderful community, the Festival committee discussed a range of possibilities to make the Festival an even better experience for the future. The outcome is that in 2018, the Wirrina Bluegrass and Acoustic Roots Festival will be held on the 3rd weekend of November. SAVE THE DATES: November 16,17 & 18 for 2018.
We had previously announced a change to the last full weekend of November. Sorry for any inconvenience, but we have now reassessed this in light of some changes to other related events and music festivals. If you have already made a booking at Wirrina Cove Holiday Park, Holly and Ben are aware of the situation and will be very happy to change your booking to the festival weekend. Please contact them to make sure your booking is secured.
The spring weather on the Fleurieu Peninsular in late November is much more likely to be pleasant. So our chances of avoiding the puddles and the wind are far greater. Bring on pleasant sunny days and balmy evenings please weather god/s.
