Welcome to Grafton's Jacaranda Festival
The world-renowned Jacaranda Festival is held yearly in Grafton, Northern Rivers New South Wales, from the second last weekend in October to the first weekend in November.


Inaugurated in 1934, this was the first of Australia's folk festivals and is based upon the magnificent spectacle of the hundreds of lilac-blossomed trees which grow in Grafton's broad tree lined avenues.

It expresses the people's thanksgiving for the generosity with which nature blesses this part of the globe.

Calling all past Jacaranda Royal Party members, Matron of Honours and Guest of Honours
