The first Festival was in 2004. Since then the growth and appeal of the Festival has been remarkable. The number of trees “wrapped in art” has more than doubled. Many local schools and community groups consider entering a tree jumper as a major project for the year. We also receive entries from textile artists from all over Australia. Every year a beautifully knitted entry arrives from Lincolnshire in England.
Jumpers and Jazz is an annual quirky country festival that lasts 10 days. The main attraction is the Warwick CBD’s trees dressed up for the occasion.
The town turns into a colourful display of crafts, live entertainment with plenty of music and bands, street markets and much more.
After strolling along the streets of Warwick, one can attend a craft workshop or simply enjoy a nice cafe and cake while listening to a vocal artist. Each year, artists come from far and abroad to sing and play their favourite Jazz tunes. And of course, one should not miss the parades!
