Together, we rise again!

Friday 16 and Saturday 17 July 2021
Willie Smith's Apple Shed, 2064 Huon Highway, Grove

The Huon Valley Mid-Winter Festival is all about celebrating the region’s apple-picking history and at its core is the wassail: the ages-old tradition of scaring evil spirits from the orchard to bring on a bumper crop.

This year, the Willie Smith’s team are returning the event to its roots, with the festival being held on an intimate scale at Willie Smith’s Apple Shed.

All the festival’s much-loved traditions make a comeback including the Burning Man, Tassie’s best folk-funk bands, the coveted costume competition, tales tall and true from Tassie’s best storytellers and of course, the Wassail.

So get ready to sing with us to the apple trees, dress in pagan finery, bang pots and pans, and let go of any negative energy to make way for the new!

This year’s festival is a bit smaller than previous years, with all tickets sold through a ballot system – names randomly picked out of a hat. The ballot has been drawn and winners have been notified via email.
