Australian Country Dance Festival founded in 2002 and affectionately referred to as Mayworth by the line dancing population, has become the biggest line dance festival in Australia.  There is everything line dancing from workshop dancing catering to all levels, four nights of social dancing, the Australian Line Dance Ball & Awards, choreography, vendors and competition dancing (including the Australian Masters - this is the only event in Australia where you can qualify to dance at the World Dance Masters in Blackpool, England).  What more could you ask for?

Note from the Event Directors:


"Wow.... #mayworth2021 words can’t express how I’m feeling, how amazing it was to have line dance events back and to reboot

Australian Country Dance Festival - Mayworth

If you get a chance please watch the Saturday night show and the video of the speeches at the end of it - it captures the weekend so well. So many emotions.

To each and every person who attended and felt safe enough to do so - thank you for believing in us & for supporting us.

To our amazing team yep #dreamteam who I am proud to call my friends. You all inspire me! You all went above and beyond to make Mayworth the event that it was - Gemma and I can’t express how much love and appreciation we have for you.

We don’t know how we are surviving but we know why... it’s because of you. You all give us so much and you are all helping us emotionally, mentally and physically - thank you for supporting us & for encouraging us.

The new venue is amazing! The hotels we used were fantastic, Tamworth CBD was a buzz with dancers shopping and supporting our community!

The feedback from everyone has been so positive, we only moved venues this year due to COVID-19 restrictions but it appears from the feedback that we have found a new home for Mayworth in the iconic Tamworth Town Hall. (Something good from covid)

We look forward to celebrating 20 years of Mayworth next year and invite you all to save the date 12-15 May 2022.

Come & join us!

Chris & Gem"
