    ”The Festival That Wasn’t” staged as a mini festival on Saturday March 26 2022 has been hailed as a great success by all those who attended. With only the two pubs as venues and 14 performers, the event took on a persona much along the lines of how we started over 25 years ago! It was wonderful to see all the smiling faces of patrons moving between The Star(Top Pub) and Yackandandah(Bottom Pub) Hotels throughout the afternoon and into the evening. Our sincere thanks to Matt from the Star and Peter from The Yack Hotel and all their wonderful staff for allowing us to take over their establishments for the day. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we all did. Thank you to all our fabulous performers and volunteers who helped make the day so special for everyone involved. We are very pleased to announce the dates for a full 2023 festival as shown above and we hope to see those of you who have loyally supported YFF in the past return next year. We are also looking forward to seeing some new faces in the audience and people wandering around the streets of our lovely town opnvce again during festival weekend.

    A huge thank you to all those who gave so generously to our Ukranian Donation Fund. In the end, we raised over $2,200 dollars and we will ensure that this money goes where it will help the people of Ukraine the most.
