The Way to St James, Cygnet

Be a pilgrim, in solitude, community and festival ritual. Journeying through the beautiful Huon Vallery on the Way to St. James, Cygnet. Pilgrims arrive on Saturday afternoon in the beautiful rural town of Cygnet during the iconic Cygnet Folk Festival.
For those of you who plan to stay and enjoy the whole festival experience, we highly recommend buying tickets online as we can sell out before the weekend. Pilgrams can buy a weekend ticket at concession price. Just present your "Pilgrim's passport" at the box when you collect the wristband.
You have the option of staying on and just enjoying the market atmosphere in Loongana Park, but for real music lovers, the best of the music will be in the numerous venues around town.
We look forward to welcoming all the pilgrims in true Cygnet Folk Festival style.
