Willie Smith’s Huon Valley Mid-Winter Festival 2019

Waking up Winter

Get ready to be lost and found at this year’s festival at our new home in the ❤ of the Huon Valley, the Ranelagh Showgrounds

FRIDAY 12 JULY- WELCOME CEREMONY + BURNING MAN

5pm – 10:30pm

Celebrations kick off with a Nayri Niara Welcome Ceremony, culminating in the burning of our 15-metre-tall ‘Big Willie’, then we’ll all dance up a storm with a slew of acts that will get your heart thumping.

SATURDAY 13 JULY: BONFIRE + WASSAIL

2pm – 11pm

Dust off your tatters and get ready to Wassail! We’ll scare away the spirits and sing to the apple trees to bless next year’s crop. Our much-loved Storytelling Cup is back, as is our epic bonfire – to keep your hearts and hands warm into the night.

SUNDAY 14 JULY: FAMILY FUN DAY!

10:30am – 4:30pm

Family Fun Day has a jam-packed day for kids including their own Wassail, yoga, kids telling their tales, leaf crown workshops, face painting and more!
