Tully's reputation for being "A Pretty Wet Place" is celebrated each year at the Golden Gumboot Festival. The 'Gumboot Games' are a major feature of this family oriented festival, along with a float parade, Golden Girl Quest and a big afternoon of entertainment, music, displays, children's activities and food and market stalls. The festival is launched with a Quest Night, where Quest entrants are introduced and judging occurs. The Gumboot Festival is Tully's major annual festival and each year a community organisation or a community project is selected to benefit from the festival proceeds.
