The Dead Maggies On Stage
The Burning Of Big Willie
The Huon Valley Mid-Winter Festival is all about celebrating the region's apple-picking history and at its core is the wassail: the ages-old tradition of scaring evil spirits from the orchard to bring on a bumper crop. This year, we're returning to our roots with the festival to be held on an intimate scale at Willie Smith's Apple Shed. All the festivals' much-loved traditions make a comeback including the Big Willie Burning Man, Tassie's best folk-funk bands, the coveted costume competition, tales tall and true from Tassie’s best storytellers and of course the Wassail. So get ready to sing with us to the apple trees, dress in pagan finery, bang pots and pans and let go of any negative energy to make way for the new.
