The Tweed River Festival is a celebration of environment and community.
Held in spring each year, the week-long festival comprises a broad range of programs, activities, workshops and exhibitions all focused on the care, protection and enhancement of the Tweed's waterways.
The festival culminates with a family afternoon in the park, featuring free entertainment, a variety of food and information stalls and a lantern parade just after dark.
So pack a hamper, grab a picnic blanket and come see the river in a different light.

2016 Tweed River Festival. Join Us at The Junction!
This year’s Tweed River Festival is something special. In 2016 the Tumbulgum community hosts the Tweed River Festival main event on Saturday 12 November.
The settlement of Tweed Junction was established in 1866 when land selections were made along the Tweed River. This year’s festival theme, Join Us at The Junction, reflects the growth of the Tweed Valley and Tumbulgum community over the past 150 years.
We’ve lined up some very special local artists to perform onstage, as well as street performers, workshops, guided Heritage Trail through Tumbulgum Village, historical display in Tumbulgum Hall (1913) and, of course, river cruises and more to enjoy on the Tweed and Rous Rivers at Tumbulgum.
The Village boasts four great eateries along Riverside Drive. The locals and additional food and beverage vendors will cater for all tastes.
The 2016 Tweed River Festival’s week of activities culminates with Tumbulgum’s 150 Years Celebration, the Lantern Parade and a laser show on the river.
