2022 Huon Valley Mid-Winter Festival

Gather your crew, light your backyard fire, mull that cider, don your costume and join us!!

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, the Willie Smith’s team are returning the event to its roots, with the festival being held on an intimate scale at Willie Smith’s Apple Shed.

All the festival’s much-loved traditions make a 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.

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!
