Festivale is Tasmania’s premium summer event, a three day celebration designed to showcase Tasmanian food, beverages and entertainment. Staged in Launceston’s iconic City Park, the ambiance of this outdoor event is unique. Held annually, Festivale attracts around 30,000 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 presents the best of Tasmania’s produce, cool climate wines, beers, spirits and exceptional entertainment in a historically and culturally significant outdoor location on the fringe of the city and is considered 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 Fresh Comedy (Friday) get ready to rock and be entertained by local artists plus headline acts live on stage including: Sample and learn at masterclasses which are held over the weekend. Watch Celebrity Guest Chef, plus amazing Tasmanian chefs in action, as they showcase some of the finest Tasmanian produce in the park. Festivale provides an opportunity to ‘taste’ and experience the best of what Tasmania has to offer.
