AN EVENT DISABLED AND CARERS CAN ENJOY

The Canberra Country Blues & Roots Festival welcomes people with disabilities and their carers. Our volunteer staff work to a Code of Conduct and are sensitive to the wide range of needs of both Carers and the Disabled.

We know that many people with disabilities are less likely stay the full 3 days and camp onsite overnight. Typically, many people with disabilities visit the Festival for 1 - 4 hours and we happily cater for this. We also understand that Carers may bring other disabled persons under their care at other times to the Festival as well as wanting to return during their time off to kick back and enjoy during their free time.

The Festival therefore offers:
  • $10 Daily Concessional entry for people with disabilities accompanied by a Carer
  • Free 3-day pass for all accredited Carers of people with disabilities.

    Friday afternoon is often the best time for carers and diabled people to attend as the crowds are less and performers can given more attention to special needs, especially participating in photos with people with diasabilities. Fax or email your registration form so we are well prepared for your group visit and can accommodate your minibus or other vehicles within the Festival Disabled Parking area.
    Over the years numerous disability groups have enjoyed the festival including: Cranleigh School, Hartley Lifecare, National Brain Injury Foundation, People With Disabilities ACT and Directions ACT amongst others. This is in addition to many home-based family carers and disabled children/siblings/partners.
