JaumaFest

Cherry Harvest Festival

JaumaFest is an annual celebration of pick-your-own organic cherries at our Adelaide Hills farm. Over two days in December, enjoy organic cherry picking plus a Christmas craft market, live music and DJs, kids' activities, Jauma natural wine, local beer and local organic food.

A community festival on Peramangk Country

JaumaFest is a grassroots festival created in 2021 by us, James and Sophie Erskine.

JaumaFest evolved from our wish of offering a nature immersion experience, building relationship to land and food source, and creating space for community inclusion and connection.

We believe community resilience and collaboration is central to building a sustainable future.

It is our hope that JaumaFest offers space to connect people from far and wide in support of local arts, music, farmers and producers, held with deep respect for the traditional custodians of Peramangk Country, and their ongoing relationship to this land we gather on.

 

Join us each December for this wonderful gathering, bring your friends and family and meet some amazing people.

Collect your season's cherries from our certified organic orchard, then chill out on the hill and listen to amazing live music with a glass or two of cold fizzy natural wine.

 

Bring a picnic rug and some snacks, and enjoy.
