Warm your bones in the darkest depths of winter as we Wassail thee old apple tree. Help us banish the evil spirits and bless the harvest.

Friday 14 - Sunday 16 July 2023
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.

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!
