Festivale: 25 yrs – Tassie food, wine & entertainment!

Shared by |tags, , ,

Summer is a great time to make a visit to Tasmania, with a number of fabulous festivals and events showcasing the island's local produce, art and entertainment.

One of Tasmania's "premier summer events", Festivale, is coming to Launceston's charming City Park.

This three-day festival of wine, beer, arts and entertainment is an annual event, attracting crowds of around 35,000.

The event originally emerged as a "multi-cultural street party" in 1988 but has developed into a staple and iconic Tasmanian event, drawing people to the island state.

Festivale will be held from Friday February 8 to Sunday February 10, giving visitors a special taste of what Tasmania has to offer including its world-class cool climate wines, fresh produce and fantastic crafts.

A Master Class Series 'From Hops to Vines' will also be at the festival from February 9 to 10, sharing knowledge of Tasmanian beer, wine and cheese in a relaxed and informative setting led by a spectacular lineup of the island's leading brewers and industry experts.

Tickets for the Master Class Series are now on sale from the Launceston Travel and Information Centre.

Festivale tickets are also available from Launceston Travel and Information Centre with adults $20 for Friday and Saturday, $15 for Sunday and children under 14 free when accompanied by an adult.
