COBARGO UNITES! CANCELLED BECAUSE OF COVID-19 It's with sadness that the Yuin Folk Club, Cobargo and the Cobargo Folk Festival announce the cancellation of our Cobargo Unites! benefit concert because of coronavirus restrictions on mass gatherings. This benefit was planned for Sunday 3 May at the Cobargo Showground.
This is a further blow for Cobargo as it follows the cancellation of the 25th Cobargo Folk Festival this year because of the fires that went through our area on New Year's Eve.
The 3 May benefit was being staged at minimal cost to the Club and the Festival through the generosity of the musicians and Tri-Point Rigging Services, who were all donating their time and expertise. Cobargo Unites! was a fundraiser that aimed to raise $200,000 for the Cobargo Community Bushfire Recovery Fund for the fire-affected communities of Cobargo and district. This event would also have brought many visitors to the Far South Coast, supporting our local businesses and injecting much needed funds into the local economy.
