“My vision for the festival is to honour the sacredness of the past, acknowledge the present, and deepen community connections into the future. Pullen Vale Folk Festival is intended to bring the local folk together, here on common ground – our ground, to celebrate the beauty and significance of each other and our very special part of Brisbane.”
