Overview

Autumn in the town of Tumut offers one of the most spectacular displays of seasonal colours to be found anywhere in New South Wales.

In 1954 the local headmaster, Alf Wood, introduced the idea of a festival to celebrate the arrival of autumn and the falling leaves, which characterised the town’s many parks and gardens. Alf enlisted the support of the Rotary Club of Tumut, and The Tumut Falling Leaf Festival was born.

2024 is the 70th Anniversary!

Live Music, Local Arts and Craft and Produce Markets, Workshops, Amazing Street Parade, Live Theatre and Comedy and more! It's the best way to see all that this beautiful town has to offer in one weekend.

Most activities are free, some require bookings by visiting the website.

The Bendigo Bank Falling Leaf Festival offers the very best of the region - local produce, food, arts and craft, exceptional live music and community spirit - all wrapped up in one fabulous event now stretching over three days.

Friday: Comedy Gala
Saturday: Markets, Street Parade, Live Music, Live Theatre, Food Trucks, Cultural and Art Workshops
Sunday: Fun Run and more workshops.
