Your new Tassie to-do list from October to December.
ICC Men's T20 World Cup
16 October - 13 November
The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup will be coming to Tasmania this spring. Bellerive Oval will host three of the 45 matches across the series. Two-time T20 World Cup champions West Indies will play First Round matches across three double-header match days.
Tasmanian Craft Fair
4 - 7 November
Showcasing arts, crafts and homewares, the Tasmanian Craft Fair is the largest of its kind in Australia. Returning for its 41st year, this long-running event has something for everyone in the family and is a great one-stop-shop to get your Christmas shopping done early (with a few gifts for yourself, of course).
10 - 13 November
If your fridge is well-stocked with sparkling wine ready to pop, then a visit to Effervescence Tasmania is a must. Bringing together the best local and global sparkling wine makers, this annual festival is sure to quench your thirst while teaching you a thing or two about bubbles from the vine with a series of tastings, dinners and masterclasses.
Stanley and Tarkine Forage Festival
11 - 20 November
Stanely and Tarkine’s food credentials need no introduction. The north west region is home to world-famous beef and seafood, and it will be hosting its inaugural Stanley & Tarkine Forage Festival this November (11–20). The 10-day program of events – think tastings, demonstrations, feasts and more – encourages foodies to explore the remote environment, eat delicious food, meet real people and learn more about how the producers grow their goods at the source. You can also follow the pop-up food trail that features the restaurant’s version of Tassie on a Plate, showcasing local produce. Expect anything from surf ’n’ turf to scallop pie and freshly cracked lobsters.
12 - 13 November
Make the most of spring’s fleeting beauty with Gardenfest. This annual floral celebration invites visitors to explore the enchanting grounds of Entally Estate, which features Australia’s oldest conservatory, chapel, stables and carriage house.
Bicheno Food and Wine Festival
Head to the coast for a sunny day of fun and frivolity at the Bicheno Food and Wine Festival. The one-day annual event features the best of local food, produce and winemakers alongside a music program to keep all of your senses thoroughly entertained.
