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.
2020 is no different!
This year is all about bringing Mid-Winter into the heart of your home with a LIVE streamed event on Sat 11 July from 6:30 pm.
The festivals much-loved traditions make a virtual comeback including the 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.
Everyone is invited to join together (from home) 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.
