Presented by Willie Smiths Cider, the opening night of the Huon Valley Mid Winter Fest belongs to The Burning Man. This ancient ritual culminates in the burning of the wicker man which symbolises the releasing of patterns of behaviour that no longer serve us.
The second night heralds the main event. Get your ticket for the largest wassail in the southern hemisphere! Sing, shout and generally make as much noise as possible to awake the cider apple trees and scare away evil spirits.
Festival goers are encouraged to get involved and wear costume. Let your imagination run wild and dress to impress – think pagan traditions, changing seasons and morris dancing.
If dressing up isn’t your thing, the festival is also a great excuse to sip on a locally made cider and sample festival food with a difference.
Sunday is family day, with kid’s storytelling, yoga, flower crown workshops and maypole dancing.
