FESTIVALE TASMANIA – FOOD AND WINE FESTIVAL Festivale is one of Tasmania’s premier summer events. A three-day celebration of the very best Tasmanian food and wine, beer, cider and spirits, arts and entertainment.
Held annually, Festivale attracts around 28,000 patrons and takes place on the first weekend of February. Originally established in 1988 as a multi-cultural street party, it has evolved into an iconic Tasmanian event, drawing people together to celebrate what Tasmania has to offer the world.
Festivale’s ability to present the best Tasmanian produce, cool climate wines, beers and entertainment in a historically and culturally significant outdoor location on the fringe of the city rates it as one of the best food and wine festivals in Australia. Under historic elm trees, family and friends can relax in the wide open space of City Park.
Listen and watch local artists plus headline acts live on stage including: Motor Ace and Eskimo Joe (Friday), Jack Jones and Vanessa Amorosi (Saturday) and Russell Morris and the Whitlams (Sunday). Sample, learn and taste at masterclasses which are held over the weekend. Watch amazing Tasmanian chefs in action as they cook in the park and don’t miss out on the famed Festivale Lunch with a National celebrity chef – who is to be announced later in 2019.
Festivale provides an opportunity to ‘taste’ and experience the best of what Tasmania has to offer.
