Armidale Events

Situated on one of the state’s most scenic driving routes, Waterfall Way, Armidale is a picturesque holiday destination in country NSW. Armidale’s strong cultural and artistic spirit is evident in the town’s many art galleries and museums. The region is also surrounded by lush national parks which contain a number of scenic walking tracks and lookouts. With its manicured gardens, magnificent cathedrals and tree-lined avenues, Armidale has the ability to charm visitors from all walks of life.

While country NSW events often conjure up images of rodeos and agricultural exhibitions, Armidale’s events calendar demonstrates a pleasing mix of urban and country entertainment. The town is home to regular farmers markets which showcase the region’s best gourmet food and freshest produce, as well as local wines, organic coffee and more. Throughout the year, Armidale residents also enjoy a number of sporting events, such as the Evocities Mountain Biking Series, and cultural events including film festivals and even fully staged operas.
