“Festivale, one of Tasmania’s premier summer events, is a three day celebration, designed to showcase the very best of Tasmanian food, wine, beer, arts and entertainment. Staged in Launceston’s historic and picturesque City Park the ambiance of the outdoor event is unique.” You can read more on the Festivale website here: Launceston Festivale.
The peacefulness of City Park is transformed.
It can feel like a large family picnic. (This photo from launcestonhumanlibrary.com.au):
In the evenings there are hints of Oktoberfest. (The following photos are from the Festivale website.)
And it’s not too late to enjoy! Along with Launceston’s beautifully preserved buildings and CBD.
