Your Festival

The Palm Creek Folk Festival is an annual event, held in June each year, in the lush tropical grounds of the Mountain View Lake Eco Park, 40km south of Townsville, North Queensland.

The event takes place over four nights and three days involving more than 100 performers and events with music concerts, dances, workshops, acoustic jams, youth festival, art and craft workshops, and special events. The Festival features the cream of local performers and selected national special guests. Be sure to bring your fancy dress for Sunday night’s Festival Parade. The theme for 2017 is GOLD to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Townsville Folk Club. The Jam Tin Stage will be kicking off the Festival on Thursday night as the Folk Club plays at Palm Creek.

If you’d like to be involved, whether by becoming a volunteer, performing, holding a stall or purchasing tickets and just kicking back and enjoying the music, one thing is guaranteed – a weekend to remember.
