2012 Blackwood Moved to Greendale

by | 4 Feb, 2012

Blackwood Fiddlers Convention

Blackwood Fiddlers ConventionThe Blackwood Fiddlers Convention have been moved to Greendale Reserve, Greendale,Victoria on 17th to 19th February 2012.

Greendale is between Ballan and Blackwood, less than 10 minutes from both. The reserve is on the main road, opposite the friendly pub.

Once again organisers have  had to make a last-minute change to the festival site brought about by the Blackwood Cricket Ground’s availability. Organisers also cite the costs for the use of the  Caravan Park as prohibitive.

See the Blackwood Website for more details, ticketing, camping etc.
