Discover Autumn in the Derwent Valley

and all that is good about the region with a day of great entertainment, fine food, local wines, beers, music for all tastes and renew friendships on the banks of the beautiful Derwent River. 

It is with a heavy heart that the Derwent Valley Autumn Festival Committee announces that the 20th Derwent Valley Autumn Festival event will not go ahead, due to COVID-19 restrictions.

The 20th festival will go ahead in the future, but it will be done in a safe manner once restrictions are eased and we know how to live in the COVID world.

We would like to thank our sponsors Derwent Valley Council, Norske Skog, and Tassal, for their continued support over the years, and we look forward to working with them for our 20th event. Thank you to our stallholders and patrons for their support and understanding over the recent months.

The 2020 raffle has been drawn, and winners have been notified. We look forward to seeing everyone again in 2022. 

Dogs at the Autumn Festival

Please note that under the Derwent Valley Council's Dog Control Act of 2000, dogs are not permitted (with the exception of guide dogs and assistance dogs), at any public event/festivals held on Council maintained land within the Derwent Valley unless there is a resolution of Council prior to this event. 

Thank you for your understanding.
