The History of Peats Ridge Festival
Peats Ridge Festival is situated in the beautiful Glenworth Valley, one hour north of Sydney. Featuring your favorite emerging and established artists over 9 stages, markets, workshops and riverside camping.
Peats Ridge is a world leader in presenting a sustainable event with a whole area of the site dedicated to eco-living education and extensive environmental initiatives and awards. The festival is also very family friendly with a full program organised for children including family camping facilities.
About the Valley:
After driving down the winding dirt road from the front gate to the Festival, Glenworth Valley opens up before you. Flat green meadows framed by a two hundred metre high wooded escarpment seal the valley from the rest of the world. The valley is surrounded by pristine temperate rainforest home to countless wallabies, wombats, platypus, and lyrebirds. The tree-lined Popran Creek winds through the valley and the whole 3,000 acre property is sprinkled with shady swimming holes and banks perfect for lazing around.
Over New Year Glenworth Valley becomes a veritable feast for the senses, packed to the brim with music, arts and culture. Two hundred bands perform across ten stages, there is theatre, cabaret and comedy, a children’s festival for all ages and dozens of free workshops. If all of this isn’t enough and you’re keen to explore the surrounding valley as well our friends at Glenworth Valley Adventure Centre offer a range of activities.
