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 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 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.
