For all you old Hippies out there, Woodstock is remembered. I watched a documentary reliving that time and was stunned, it was sooooo wild!
Australia has The Woodford Folk Festival.
A week long Festival held every year prior New Year on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, on Aboriginal Jinibara Country.
Set on 500acres it is dedicated to the Arts and Humanities and underpinned by a strong sense of environmentalism.
Over 580 events with more than 2,000 Local, National and International Entertainers.
I have only attended once, for one day, yet what I found the most entertaining were the Street Theatres and Parades. The rest include: Musicians and Stilt Walkers. Fire Eaters, Dancers, Circus Performers, Art and Craft Workshops, Cafes and Restaurants..all making the entertainment sucessful.
A diverse audience of all ages and many different nationalities converge eack year to join in the festive fun. Of course no one is put off if it rains...that just add's to the flavour.

Woodstock or Woodford.... That is the Question.
An Author since 2012 and retired Specialist Registered Nurse. I reside in sub-tropical Queensland, Australia, with my American husband Raymond and our two little dogs. Mille` (Toy Foxy), and Marley (Toy Poodle). Late in 2008 I began to explore and enjoy the realm of creative writing. This is something which has always been an interest yet until now,I haven't found time to indulge. God is the cornerstone of my home and heart. He is my life and my breath, for without Him I am nothing. My desire is to edify His existance in my daily walk through life. To inspire and encourage the broken hearted. And to assist in the knowledge that EVERYTHING has a reason and a purpose under the Heavens. We are reminded through our faith in Jesus that He will, "Turn our Mourning into Dancing and our Sorrow into Joy." Psalms 30:11.
