Quirky Yarnbombing Festival


Warwick in July can be very cold, but there's an annual event in the town that will keep you warm and enthusiastic about this historic town. It is their annual Jumpers and Jazz Festival – described as "A Quirky Queensland Festival not to be missed"!

Since 2004 this annual festival has been growing and you would have to book early for accommodation in the town. When the word "yarnbombing" is mentioned, most folk have no idea what it is, but Warwick has embraced this quirky way of celebrating arts – specifically fibre art, where trees, buildings, vehicles – in fact almost anything, is decorated with knitted or crocheted art works. It is crazy, fun, and shows the amazing array of talent that heads to Warwick at this time of year.



The Jazz and Jumpers Festival is on between July 16th and 26th, and the whole town gets involved with the main street in particular decorated in a wide variety of items beyond knitting and crochet.

So, rug up, and set off for a full day or days of fun activities. There are pop-up shops, music, entertainment, and celebration of food and all things from the region. If you wish to stay, book as soon as possible. There are caravan parks and motels not far from Warwick if all the local accommodation is booked out. It is well worth spending a few days there!

Entertainment is all around town – with performers such as Well Swung Daddies, Emma Pask and John Morrison Trio, Jeff Usher, Andrews Sisters and lots more. See the website for more detail. Program

Also there are a range of Workshops – again you will need to check the website for details.
