The Grafton Jacaranda festival is Australia’s longest running floral festival, steeped in tradition, community participation and celebration. Established in 1934, the festival coincides with the flowering of Grafton’s iconic Jacaranda trees.
The Festival program of events takes place from the last weekend in October to the first weekend in November. The Festival attracts over 35,000 intra and interstate, national and international visitors to Grafton each year, injecting over $2 million in economic benefit to the Clarence Valley.
During the festival there are over 20 official events and over 50 affiliate events taking place throughout the 10 day program. Grafton Jacaranda Festival Inc is a not for profit organisation and the Festival would not be possible without the generous support of commercial sponsorship and community donations.
