STOMP Festival


We are extremely disappointed to be announcing the cancellation of the 2021 Cessnock STOMP Festival.

The Cessnock STOMP Festival team have been working on how we can deliver a COVID Safe event in 2021 within the current restrictions on events. We have received information from from both NSW Health Authorities and the COVID Helpline and with that information the decision has been made to cancel the event.
The current restrictions on events will not allow the event to be viable and we want everyone to enjoy the festival when they attend.

While 2021 is cancelled, work will start on bringing back STOMP in 2022 bigger, better and a great event for all ages.


What is The Cessnock STOMP Festival?

The STOMP Festival is a must-see event themed around Food, Wine and Community that creates an event that engages locals as well as supports local businesses opening their doors to trade on the day, bridging the divide between the Cessnock and Pokolbin regions. 

The events bring economic benefits to our members and local businesses and showcase what unique offerings we have in the Cessnock Local Government Area.
This event often provides support for businesses and delivers an event to recover from external conductions such as COVID, drought, bushfire, and shutdowns
