Organisers of Tumbarumba’s Tumbafest have announced the event will not be going ahead in 2021, citing ongoing crowd capacity restrictions. Tumbafest Inc president Andrew Rae said the committee had been monitoring health advice over the past six months, and had decided to make the decision early to avoid further impact on those involved. “We have taken the decision to cancel now in consideration of fans, performers, suppliers, volunteers, businesses, market stall holders and our committee to minimise the impact on them and enable them to plan for the 25th anniversary of the event in 2022,” he said. IN OTHER NEWS: “It’s been such a tough time for Tumbarumba and regional NSW who have battled drought, bushfires, COVID-19 and the recent flood event, however we’ll be back to celebrate 25 years in February 2022.” The event was able to go ahead early this year despite the impact of the summer bushfires, a month before the virus shut down all major events across the country.
