There are flavoursome food, wine and beer events, a vibrant arts and cultural scene and an array of regional festivals, all brimming with colour, activity and the chance to have fun, Tasmania style. Tasmania's event calendar will keep you entertained all year round. Our cultural festivals include the popular Festival of Voices, Hobart Baroque, the long-running Cygnet Folk Festival and the major biennial arts festival, Ten Days on the Island.
The Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) in Hobart offers an amazing program of exhibitions and regular events, including Tasmania's largest music festival, MONA FOMA in summer and Dark MOFO in winter, each offering a unique blend of art, music, food and community celebration.
Food lovers can sample the state's fantastic wine and food at the Taste of Tasmania and at regional food festivals across the state.
