Since 1971, The Monaro Folk Society (originally the Monaro Folk Music Society) has fostered the enjoyment of active participation in the arts, with particular emphasis on our wonderful heritage of music and dance.

The Society runs a number of music singing and dance groups catering for beginners through to advanced levels. Two of these groups have open stage bands attached and provide live music for all their events.

Regular events include dances at the Yarralumla Woolshed, annual Colonial Balls, Dancing in Garema Place, hosting and supporting the National Folk Festival and hosting mini festivals such as the Ard Tac Festivals.

The Society also runs two performance venues, The Merry Muse for professional level performers, and Club Night which caters for up and coming performers with black board evenings.

The Monaro Folk Society is a community organisation for the ACT and region dedicated to nurturing the folk arts and values.
