We told you there would be more prizes to win via Think Tasmania, and we’re pleased to announce a Festivale giveaway as our very first for 2013. It’s quite appropriate really, as the same organising committee were responsible for our final giveaway of 2012 (celebrating New Year in Launceston at Royal Park).

Festivale Giveaway: Prize Tickets

Up for grabs in this Festivale giveaway are two 3-day passes retailing for $38 each. Their true value is actually much more (if you bought tickets individually to each of the three days, you would pay $55). The 3-day passes can only be purchased (or won here!) prior to the event and for a limited time only.

Lou Clark, the Chair of Festivale wrote a guest article for us before last year’s event. She has this to say about 2013 which marks the 25th anniversary of the event…

Established in 1988, Festivale has become a significant part of Tasmania’s food and wine scene. Launceston’s beautiful and stunning City Park gives Festivale so much of its wonderful relaxed picnic-y alfresco flavour. The ambience of this event is unique and it is now highly regarded for showcasing the quality and diversity of the State’s renowned fine food, cool climate wines, boutique beers and entertainment.

This year you can tantalise your tastebuds with offerings from over 75 stallholders, attend a highly informative master class led by an amazing line up of leading Tasmanian industry experts or celebrate Harvest Launceston farmers’ market’s 1st birthday with Stephanie Alexander’s Kitchen Garden Foundation and Shawn Sheather, resident chef at Australian Good Food and Travel Guide.

Perhaps you might like to sample James Boag’s commemorative Festivale beer, step inside the Tiny Top, marvel at the amazing talent and skills of the international buskers or you can simply throw a rug down on the ground, enjoy a glass of wine and watch the whole event unfold before your eyes.

Thank you to our wonderful, passionate and committed volunteer Committee, our staff and sponsors for helping make Festivale possible. Treat your senses and enjoy the Festivale experience!

We went along to Launceston City Park in February last year, and wrote about the event and the Festivale Photography competition for Think Tasmania. We’ll be attending again in 2013 courtesy of the organising committee, and we’re very much looking forward to it. When Lou speaks of the stunning setting and unique ambiance, she is by no means overstating the case. Festivale is a premier event on the Tasmanian calendar and one that everyone should experience.

Win Passes: Festivale Giveaway

As we’ve said before, the competition rules on Facebook are all too mind-boggling, so we’re going to keep this in-house. We’re also going to keep this Festivale giveaway 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! Of course if you’d like to follow Festivale on Facebook and share this opportunity with your friends, that would be a good idea too. Caring and sharing about Tasmanian events is always a nice thing to do, and we’d really appreciate the gesture. Events like this one staged by the Festivale team can’t continue without community support; and that’s why we like to get behind them.
