2014: Celebrating 60 Years of Festivals

1954 Original festival committee

In 2014 the Festival will celebrate its 60th anniversary. A remarkable effort for a community based Festival. The event is well supported by the Tumut Shire, the local business community and the Shire residents.

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 Festival of the Falling Leaf was born.

The initial aim of the festival was to foster an appreciation of nature’s colours to both the local community and visitors through a series of events over a period of ten days.     

Over the years the Festival of the Falling Leaf, like the season it represents, has seen many changes, but, has continued to flourish and grow into a fabulous annual event attracting thousand of visitors far and wide.

The Festival of the Falling Leaf is recognised as one of the major events in the Tumut Region. The scenic location, autumn colours and crisp, clear air of the Tumut Region provide a unique festival experience for visitors on the last weekend of April each year.
