Huon Valley Mid-winter Fest

Concert or Performance Festivals and Celebrations Food and Wine

13 Jul 2018 to 15 Jul 2018

Willie Smith’s Apple Shed is the hottest hut in the Huon Valley: craft ciders, artisan cheeses, and plenty of space to sit, chat, roll in the hay, etc. They’ve partnered up with other like-minded locals to throw a mini midwinter festival to celebrate the region’s apple-pickin’ history.
At its core is a focus on wassailing: the ages-old tradition of scaring nasties out of cider apple trees, from orchard to orchard, in order to bring on a stellar autumn yield. Now, things may seem a little strange at first: kings, queens, processions, giving gifts to the trees, shouting, banging, fire, candlelight, and so forth, but what else would you expect? And if none of that bobs your Geeveston fanny, that’s okay too – there’ll be cider, entertainment and feast-worthy food in abundance.
