About the festival

From little things big things grow

The Truffle Festival – Canberra Region was the brainchild of Wayne Haslam (Blue Frog Truffles) and Fred Harden (ThinkTag Creative Services).

Created in 2009, the Festival was originally named the Capital Country Truffle Festival. The aim of the Festival was (and remains) to create a market for local growers; to educate the local chefs and the public about how truffle (particularly locally grown Périgord truffles) can be cooked and enjoyed.

From humble beginnings the Festival has grown to an annual celebration of not just truffle, but of the Canberra region in winter, and the delicious food and wine experiences that are the perfect cold-weather indulgence.

Now in its 10th year, the Festival is managed by the Capital Country Truffle Festival Association; a group of dedicated volunteers, who go above and beyond to keep this magical festival alive each year.

The Capital Country Truffle Festival Association is made up of the following Black Winter truffle growers:

The Association is supported by Festival Manager Julia Brown.

The Truffle Festival operates as a promotional umbrella for truffle events hosted from a variety of different venues and businesses throughout the region, including key signature events organised by the Capital Country Truffle Festival Association.
