Imagine a place where scientists grace centre stage, microscopes live on bar tables, and late-night conversations have the potential to change the world. Welcome to Beaker Street Festival, where science brings us together. Beaker Street Festival is a week-long celebration of science in Lutruwita/Tasmania each August. Now in its eighth year, Beaker Street Festival promises a mix of wonder, flavour, and scientifically proven fun. The Festival invites adults from all walks of life to delve into today’s hottest topics with a packed program of science-infused entertainment and discussions, while experiencing the best of Tasmanian environments and culture. This year, attendees will dive into Antarctic science (literally!), help bring stars back to the city skyline, dip their toes into the slippery science of wellness, and taste the future of food. The action will take place in an expanded Festival precinct spanning Nipaluna/Hobart’s cultural and entertainment precincts and taking in City Hall, Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, The Old Mercury Building, Hope and Anchor, Mawson Place, CSIRO, and pubs, bars, and restaurants around the waterfront and CBD. Events will kick off on Tuesday August 6th culminating with a weekend of festivities on Friday August 9th – Sunday August 11th. For those looking for more, there’s also an opportunity to recharge on Tassie’s spectacular East Coast during a two-night retreat winding up on Tuesday August 13th.
