The 3 Day Festival at the Queanbeyan Showground is ideal for camping either in motorhomes, vans or tents. We welcome campers and are very happy to make the experience all that more special.




 

A FESTIVAL THAT WELCOMES MUSIC & DANCE GROUPS

We welcome all visitors to the Festival and this certainly adds to the festive atmosphere. The Canberra Country Blues & Roots Festival is a friend to the many music and dance clubs and groups, so we work directly with your group to ensure your stay is memorable for all the right reasons! We know that musicians and dancers may stay 1 to 4 days onsite so we cater for all requirements and are happy to assist. Where possible, we gather group/club members in the same camping row/area so a common community instantly appears when the vans and tents arrive. Note that the Festival camping site is "Pet Friendly", so visitors can bring and walk dogs and horses as long as on a leash. Again, sites are allocated on "first come first served" basis so make your booking early. Search this page for the relevant club or group you associate with, download and complete the form or register online - making sure you write the name of your group, club or association so we can arrange for your camping site to be located next or close to your friends! Inquiries can be directed to info@canberracountry.com

The Festival hosts the Linedance Nationals which is well placed 5 weeks out from Christmas as the last linedancing event on the calendar. We already have linedance campers from New Caledonia and France travelling in motorhomes so don't be surprised to hear languages other than English if you stay in the French Quarter of the camping area!

    COUNTRY/OTHER MUSIC CLUBS + ASSOCIATIONS

    No other music genre has so many organisations dedicated to music as with Country Music and naturally we love Country Music Clubs and Associations. All our management and many of of volunteers are members of these clubs and so have direct experience in their activities. Over the years the Canberra Country Music Festival has hosted country music club members from across Australia and as far as Europe and North America! So don't be surprised if someone pulls out a guitar and starts playing in the campsite area, this is normal! We also welcome Country Music Clubs comittee personnel to lend a hand as volunteers if convenient and certainly please take some time out to have a cuppa with our coordinators as we always enjoy networking. And don't forget we have the Country Music Club Forum on Sunday morning for visiting members to network and air their thoughts and ideas. Competitors in the "Country's Got Talent competition should note that the heats are conducted offsite at the True Blue Stage with registration detailed here.
