The joint is really jumpin' as festival starts jazzin' up

THE vibe is jumping as organisers of Warwick's 10th Jumpers and Jazz in July Festival swing into final preparations on their 12-week countdown to winter's zaniest festival.

Warwick Tourism and Events CEO Tracy Vellacott urged locals to keep abreast of all the Jumpers and Jazz news by liking Jumpers and Jazz on Facebook or by signing up to the e-newsletter on the website.

"At this point in time organisers go into meltdown as the enquiries are relentless about street trees, school trees, jazz music, what's on the program, accommodation availability and the like so the simplest way of keeping up to date and getting the right information is by following us on Facebook, or getting all the latest from our e-newsletter," Mrs Vellacott said.

Time is fast running out for organisers to include their events in the official Jumpers and Jazz program.

"If you are holding an event, it must be registered with the Warwick Tourism and Events office by the end of this week," Mrs Vellacott said.

"Seven thousand programs will be designed and printed over the coming weeks, ready for distribution including consumer shows like the Brisbane Caravan Camping and Touring Holiday Show in early June.

"Tree registrations are going gang-busters, workshop registrations are on track to being full prior to the festival with just a few spots still available and the gallery's Ten Years Ten Trees Ten Artists pop-up exhibition is the perfect way to acknowledge the festival's milestone."
