Journeys : Dec10 Jan11
an initiative of tastefestival.com.au December 2010 / January 2011 55 Tasmania’s largest annual event – the Taste – is undergoing a facelift to celebrate its 22nd year. Not only will the iconic waterfront shed be well on the way to its full transfor mation into a multi- purpose venue, but the event itself is undergoing some major changes in the promotion of Tasmania’s fine produce. A new program of activities has been introduced to entice festival participants to not only sample some of the best food, wine, beer and beverages in Tasmania but also provide the opportunity to learn about the jour ney from paddock to plate. The program includes: • A new Taste Theatre for food and w ine programs, lectures and guided tastings • A new program of Red Cap escorted themed group tours of the Taste, focusing on particular subjects such as sparkling w ine, aquaculture and more • A new brasserie precinct featuring Tasmania’s burgeoning craft-brew ing and cider-making industry, along with matched foods • A renewed focus on Tasmanian provenance and new products • A new retail alley where visitors can buy Tasmanian products • A new cafe district where people can meet friends at ser viced tables for great coffee and pastries • Two new VIP corporate entertaining areas With stage one of renovations to the waterfront venue completed prior to the Taste Festival (including the installation of a stunning new lighting str ucture), the new forecourt area will be transformed into a vibrant, welcoming entrance and information hub with clear signage to guide patrons throughout the Festival site. The Forecourt Stage will become the Festival focal point for stage-based acts and the RACT Insurance busker performances throughout the day – then each evening it will transform into a popular area to dance the night away. An exciting line up of entertainment will again be a Festival highlight, w ith a focus on showcasing local Tasmanian talent – and an increase in roving performers will entertain the crowds around the venue. This year, don’t miss it! Just for a taste In Tasmania today
