What's on: Mar 2022

Your new to-do list from February to March in 2022.

Triumphant Debut

Until 18 April

If you visit Mona this month you’ll see James Capper’s Prototypes of Speculative Engineering. It is an amalgamation of Capper’s interests in mechanical engineering, industrial design and evolutionary biology. His mobile sculptures steal the show.

Garlic, anyone?

26 February

Head to the Koonya Garlic Festival for a quirky and uniquely Tasmanian experience. At the heart of the harvest festival is the Garlic Competition, open to both amateur and pro growers who compete for the coveted ‘Golden Globes’. Chefs Analiese Gregory (below), Tino Carnevale, Ishan Acharya and more will be hosting masterclasses.

Wild for triathlon

5 March

Don’t let the scenic setting fool you. The Coles Bay Half Triathlon is a tough course. Held within the natural reserves of Coles Bay, the course includes a 1.9km swim, 90km ride and 21.1km run. This is not for the faint-hearted.

Heart of the Huon

13 - 14 March

A weekend of fine produce, food, live music and family fun? Sign us up, please. In its 29th year, A Taste of the Huon food and wine festival showcases all that is grown and produced in the bountiful region.

On track

Until 17 - 19 March

It’s the holy grail of mountain bike rides. The Dragon Trail MTB race weaves its way through Tassie’s wilderness. Day one sees riders take to the Blue Derby trails; day two, Blue Tier to the Bay of Fires; and day three, St Helens.

New in town

19 March

On 19 March, Hobart will welcome the Out Here in the Field Festival at Cascade Brewery to its events calendar. The team behind the festival promise it will go beyond the common music festival offerings, with local craft beer on tap, wine by local producers and seasonal cocktails, all of which can be enjoyed on a country club-themed tennis court. Forget food trucks; expect a curated dining experience instead. And what is a music festival without music? The Teskey Brothers (pictured) are headlining so we’re calling it: this will be a hit.
