There will be onsite workshops for both music and dance, public discussions, talent quests, dancing and games for you to get involved in.
The weather is likely to be hot and sunny, so make sure you bring your sunhats and sunscreen. Rain is rare in Canberra during November, however it always pays to bring a plastic poncho in case things do get wet.
If you're all set to enjoy the event but can't bear the thought of leaving your pampered pony at home, you're in luck. The Canberra Country Blues and Roots festival is the only urban festival in the country to have facilities for horses overnight, so there's no reason to say neigh to this fantastic event.
