After being forced to leave its long-time home, the festival reinvented itself last year at the beautiful Living Landscapes on Homestead Rd in Pefferlaw. The new country garden setting is perfect for one of the more intimate festivals in the summer calendar and remains true to it’s philosophy of providing outstanding entertainment for a reasonable price. “Fresh Air, Good Vibes, Great Music” will always remain at the heart of the EagleWood Folk Festival!
