The Laura Folk Fair is a totally family friendly event. Gold Coin donation appreciated on entry.
From humble beginnings in 1980, the Laura Folk Fair was just a few stalls and a lot of vision from the original instigator Dick Biles and now it has grown into the wonderful event it is today.
We hope you will join us for a fantastic two days filled with unique stalls, competitions and activities for the whole family, and great entertainment, to help us celebrate our 40th event!
A corroboree with a difference; to share culture and heal the spirit. Dupang brings together local, interstate and international Indigenous artists for a three day camping festival at the spectacular waterfront site on the Coorong, Ngarrindjeri land.
Tal-Kin-Jeri Director, Major ‘Moogy’ Sumner AM, says “the last Dupang Festival was healing. People came to experience and learn about our culture, to be involved together. The story telling, the dancing, the fires, workshops, talking circles. We camped, we sang, we danced and together we went on a journey, which connected us to the spirits of this land and waters on our country”.
On behalf of the ancestors and people of this land -we are calling you to come together.
