Clarence Valley Camp Oven Festival postponed

This year’s Clarence Valley Camp Oven Festival has been postponed to the spring long weekend 30th September to 3rd October 2022.

Speaking from Nymboida Camping and Canoeing Centre, festival Creative Director Laena Stephenson said, “We have been monitoring the effect the persistent rain has had on our campgrounds and concluded they will be unsuitable for hosting up to 1,000 visitors in June.”

“Regrettably, we’ve had to make the tough decision to postpone to the beginning of October, by which time the grounds will have had time to dry out.”

This year’s festival has benefitted from substantial grant and sponsorship funding and organisers are in the process of contacting funders, contractors and performers to lock in the new dates.

“It’s looking as though the vast majority of our artistic program can be delivered intact later in the year, so please watch our website and Facebook page for updates,” said Phil Nicholas, festival Event Manager.

The revised festival program will be published at

Festival-goers who have already booked are invited to move their camping reservation to the October long weekend or to the 2023 festival which will take place on the June long weekend next year. If neither of these dates suit, please contact the NC&C office on 02 6649 4155 to arrange a refund.
