Jumpers & Jazz in July - Warwick
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!
An event not to miss!
