A man has died following an incident at the Summernats car festival in Canberra.

Organisers say the 30-year-old died at Canberra Hospital on Friday afternoon after an incident involving a ute at 4pm on Thursday.

ABC reports the man fell off the back of the ute at Exhibition Park.

The ACT Police collision investigation and reconstruction team are investigating and a report will be prepared for the coroner.

The organisers will address the media on Saturday morning.

"The Summernats team offer their deepest condolences to family and friends of those involved," they said in a statement.

It's the first death on ACT roads in 2017.
