Enjoying one of the most picturesque settings anywhere in the State, the Festival marks a special time of the year. The Esplanade at New Norfolk with its huge open space along the Derwent River is a magnificent site offering a stunningly colourful vista of superb autumn tonings displayed by the wide variety of old Oaks, Elms, Willows and Poplars.
The Festival, which was first held in 2000, has been enormously successful, growing from approximately 3,000 patrons in the first year to more than 15,000.
Now the largest event in the Derwent Valley, it includes free non-stop entertainment across four stages including several genres of bands, dancers, singers and choirs. The stalls supply arts, crafts and produce, with the best local fine food, beer and wine available.
A variety of free special displays as well as pay per ride attractions provide something for the whole family and all budgets.
