Your visit to the beautiful Atherton Tablelands during October would be incomplete without experiencing the TABLELANDS FOLK FESTIVAL.
Held every year on the fourth weekend of October, centered at the historic Yungaburra Hotel, the festival runs throughout the weekend culminating in the final concert on late Sunday afternoon. This event features over 60 local and guest musicians, food stalls, poetry, a fully programmed Children’s Festival, market stalls, Youth Stage, jam sessions, a Wellbeing Fair and much, much more.
Weekend tickets must be pre-booked and can be purchased online from 1st August. Camping is available, or book local accommodation quick. A limited number of session tickets (day or evening) are also available.
Don’t miss out on this Festival with True Community Spirit.
Held at the historic Yungaburra Hotel, 4th Sturday (Markets Day) every month. Presented by the Tablelands Folk Festival, there’s a monthly feature artist, jam session on the front veranday from 3pm and opoen mic session ’till late.
The Malanda SES have continually supported the Tablelands Folk Festival and have an information booth set up at the Festival every year. 2014 was no exception with those pictured attending the Tablelands Folk Festival information and recruitment booth/stall in Yungaburra. Members are always ready to lend a hand where necessary and are a familiar and friendly sight over the weekend.
The Tablelands Folk Festival Vice -President Jenni Kruck has pleasure in presenting a cheque to Brian Walters from the Malanda SES.
Brian advises the donation will go toward the purchase of new LED emergency lighting.
The new LED flood lights are light and easy to setup, battery powered and replace large, heavy generator powered halogen lights. These new lights have been trialled elsewhere with success and so will make emergence call outs at night safer and more efficient for our local SES teams.
The TFF thanks the Malanda SES and we look forward to continuing mutual support.
