In 2022 we are making some small changes to the layout of the stalls sites to better accommodate COVID-19 regulations and support stallholders in getting the best visibility and foot traffic possible throughout the weekend.

Food stalls will be in all four locations however artisan (non-food) stalls will only be placed in Tin Pan Alley and Paved Paradise.

The Cygnet Folk Festival offers a number of stall sites throughout the Festival Village in the heart of Cygnet. The stall locations are in Loongana Park, Mary St car park (opposite Town Hall), the St James College quadrangle and The Paddock (Mary St next to the BP Service Station).
