Welcome to the very first Think Tasmania competition for 2014. We’ve got a really great prize on offer to kick off the New Year, too. Readers have the opportunity to win Festivale tickets, thanks to the organisers of the iconic food and wine festival held annually in Launceston.

WIN Festivale Tickets

Award-winning Festivale is widely considered one of the best food and wine festivals in Australia. The 2014 event will showcase more than 70 stalls featuring locally-grown produce, together with the most prestigious Tasmanian wineries, micro brewers and cider specialists. Patrons also have the opportunity to meet and interact with skilled makers and enthusiasts in special experience-based events.

As always, Launceston’s City Park will provide a stunning summer venue. The dual-stage outdoor theatre is the perfect place to appreciate the talent-filled, non-stop program of local entertainment. Offering something to suit all tastes, even the kids are well-catered for with workshops, dancing, craft, face painting and the Tiny Top circus tent. The roving entertainment and buskers are alway a highlight of any visit to Festivale.

The winner of this Festivale competition will receive two x three-day passes so they can enjoy the entire smorgasbord on offer. The prize Festivale tickets are worth $39-00 each (so total prize value is $78-00). At the conclusion of the random draw, the Festivale tickets will be mailed to any address in Australia.

Festivale 2014 will be held at City Park in Launceston on Friday February 7 (5:30pm – 10:45pm); Saturday February 8 (11:00am – 10:45pm) and Sunday February 9 (10:00am – 4:00pm). Entry prices for individual sessions: Friday night $20; Saturday $20 and Sunday $15 (children U/14 FOC if accompanied by an adult).

For more information visit the Fesivale website, or follow Festivale on Facebook and/or Festivale on Twitter. You can also purchase Festivale tickets and download the full program online.

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 Festivale, that would be really great. You could discuss your personal desire to win this prize, 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 Tickets ~ Common Sense Please?

  • Leave a comment on this post by midnight 31st January 2014 (local time). We’ll choose a random winner using our website’s competition app.
  • The pair of three-day Festivale tickets (as described) with a combined retail value of $78-00 comprise the one and only 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 tickets 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 tickets 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!
