Fairbridg Festival Inc is dedicated to promoting tradition-based, contemporary and multicultural folk music, dance and related arts with particular emphasis on the involvement of families.

The Intent of FolkWorld Inc.:

Annually, we involve young people in two festivals within a festival.  The Children's Festival and Youthopia Festival offer a broad range of music, workshops, dance and craft.  Our craft activities demonstrate our sustainability by using all recycled materials.  The workshops include puppet making, song writing, yoga, multi-cultural dance, theatre performance, circus skills, instrument making and more.  Our volunteers decorate and create signs (for the fest ival) which are primarily from recylced materials, often found in our own local commmunities. As a group of about 25, we meet monthly to coordinate the total operations of the festial.  These meetings are inspirational, excisting and a great source of social gathering.
