Monaro Folk Society 50th Anniversary


2020 heralds the 50th year of MFS. We plan to make a splash with our events this year and invite all members and non-members to be a part of these.


Due to the COVID 19 situation we have postponed the Yarralumla Woolshed Celebration in March.  We hope things will ease later in the year so have rescheduled for Saturday 5 December 2020.


September 26    Colonial Ball at the Albert Hall

                                      Our annual formal flagship event with a dance program to be published.  Details here


December 5        50th Anniversary celebration at the Yarralumla Woolshed.

                                      An afternoon’s program is planned, and a schedule will be published here in a couple of weeks. However, for now, the day will kick off with a Kids Bush Dance about midday with music by the Tin Mugs band. This will be followed by stage performances, interspersed with an Irish Set Dance join in session and a Contra Dance join in session to live music. This will finish with a feature act leading to the Shearers ball at 8.00pm. The activities during the day are free to the public but there is an entry cost for the Shearers’ Ball. Details here.
