On several prior occasions, the very first Think Tasmania competition for the New Year has involved tickets to Festivale 2015. This time around we have a really special surprise though; the winner will also receive a night’s accommodation in Launceston. Readers have the opportunity to win this great prize, thanks to the organisers of the iconic food and wine festival.

Festivale Competition - Launcestion

Award-winning Festivale: Launceston Tasmania

WIN Tickets and Launceston Accommodation

Festivale has been recognised as one of the best annual food and wine festivals in Australia. The longest running event of its type in Tasmania continues to attract large crowds each year. Launceston’s Chamber of Commerce awarded the Outstanding Visitor Experience Award to Festivale for the 2014 event.

Launceston City Park always provides a stunning summer venue, with this year’s celebrations to commence the evening of Friday 13 February. A full program boasting music, roving entertainment and stalls of Tasmanian food and drink will continue all day and into the night on Saturday and conclude Sunday afternoon.

Festivale 2015 will be held at City Park Launceston on Friday February 13 (5:30pm – 10:45pm); Saturday February 14 (11:00am – 10:45pm) and Sunday February 15 (10:00am – 4:00pm). All relevant information has been shared via the Fesivale website.

Festivale Competition - Tasmanian Wine

Celebrate in style: Festivale competition

As we’ve said before, the competition rules on Facebook have always been too hard to handle, so we’re going to keep this in-house. We’re also going to keep it REALLY simple. If you are subscribed to receive the free newsletter from Think Tasmania, you are eligible to enter. Apparently a random draw is still allowed in Tasmania without applying for a permit, so here’s what you need to do…

Step 1 – be a subscriber to the FREE newsletter from Think Tasmania*

Step 2 – leave a reply at the bottom of this article.

And that’s it! This will be a random draw, so comments won’t influence the outcome. But if you’d like to leave any feedback about the food and wine festival, that would be really great. You could discuss your personal desire to win this Festivale competition, or even Think Tasmania… we’d love to hear it all, and we’ll be closely following all the comments. We won’t reply individually because that would upset the competition app (it might award us the prize!).

Festivale Competition ~ Common Sense Please?

  • Leave a comment on this post by midnight 9 February 2015 (local time). We’ll choose a random winner using our website’s competition app.
  • A night’s accommodation on Friday 13 February and a double pass to Festivale comprise the one and only competition prize.
  • Fair and reasonable terms and conditions automatically apply. So one entry each (our app is able to detect multiple entries).
  • Please apply common sense to all aspects of this Festivale competition… we’d hate to disqualify someone for being silly.
  • We won’t use your email address for anything sinister, because we firmly believe in doing the right thing. Always. Don’t you?
  • We’ll announce the winner’s name here, on Facebook and Twitter. We’ll also contact the winner by email, and advise Lou Clark (the Festivale committee chairperson) of the competition results.

What else do we need to stipulate? Nothing? Okay… then it’s over to you. Comment away! We wish you all the very best of luck. And if you’d be kind enough to share this Festivale competition with all your peeps, we’d be extremely happy. Besides showing a little friendly community spirit by spreading the joy, sharing will also no doubt lead to similar competitions in the future. And THAT can only be a good thing for everyone!

*We ask that you subscribe to Think Tasmania for these competitions for several reasons. Of course we’d prefer any prizes go to dedicated followers; and we need to make sure we can contact the winners. What makes it to the Newsfeed of Facebook is a bit random, and not everyone even uses social media. Most people can receive an email however, so that’s our sure-fire way of reaching everyone. And finally, we like to share all things Tasmanian with as many interested readers as possible – that’s our mission!
