The Patchewollock Music Festival began in 2012 as a one off event. But following the warm reception and the success of the festival, it morphed into an annual event that brings together locals and foreign visitors for a fun weekend of music and entertainment.
The event is run by a team of volunteers drawn from the region, but who have managed to craft a unique festival that offers entertainment and various music genres to cater for the diversity of all visitors.
