Notice regarding Showcase event at Fremantle Arts Centre:

In response to quite a few queries we’ve received, please note that the Showcase event being held at Fremantle Arts Centre on Sunday, 7 April is presented by Kaleidoscope Multicultural Arts Management (KMAM) with ticket proceeds being profit-shared with the participating Showcase touring artists.

The Showcase is not a FolkWorld Fairbridge Festival fundraiser event.  FolkWorld has not been involved with organising the event, nor funding it.

In the spirit of community support, FolkWorld has allowed KMAM access to its marketing channels to promote the event.  KMAM has liaised with FolkWorld about its marketing of the event, which we are pleased has had such as strong response as it confirms support for the artistic program of the cancelled festival.

This arrangement allows us to remain focused on the myriad of tasks associated with the cancellation of our much-loved flagship event, Fairbridge Festival 2024, and to then plan fundraising activities for FolkWorld and the festival.

If you’d like to support FolkWorld, please purchase your Fairbridge Festival raffle tickets here, which are available until 21 April 2024. Or make a tax-deductible donation here.

Important Announcement

FolkWorld is heartbroken to announce the 2024 Fairbridge Festival has been forced to cancel.  


Lagging ticket sales, increased production costs and just as importantly, insufficient volunteers to put on a Festival of this kind, have meant the much-loved Fairbridge Festival is unable to proceed in 2024. 


The Board and Team behind the Fairbridge Festival would like to thank everyone who has supported the Festival and plan to continue doing so into the future – watch this space!  


All ticket sales will be automatically refunded.
