Hobart City to Launch More Accessible Winter Feast

While the program might be smaller than we’re used to, the Dark Mofo team are currently busy getting ready to deliver one of our city’s favourite events for 2024 – the much-loved CIty of Hobart Winter Feast.

The Hobart City Council is proud to be supporting the event again for 2024 and believes there is still plenty to excite the senses and give a big enough reason for intra and interstate tourists to be enticed into Hobart this Winter.

The Feast has become a local and visitor highlight, and each year serves up an incredible culinary showcase of both Hobart and statewide talent.

Hobart Lord Mayor Anna Reynolds said it was more important now than ever to support our festivals.

“This is the 11th year of the Feast, and we always receive very positive feedback from both locals and visitors about the quality of the food, the music and the atmosphere,” Cr Reynolds said.

“The flow on benefits to local businesses and tourism operators is clear and the vibrancy it brings to our darkest month has been a true game changer for Hobart.

“I appreciate with extra cost of living pressures that many are taking a second look at how they spend every dollar which is why we’re so proud to support a festival that is doing what it can to increase accessibility by offering lower priced tickets across some nights and free entry for both Sundays this year.

“We welcome the news of Metro increasing the number of free trips into the city for the Winter Feast from both the Northern and Southern suburbs this year too.”

Dark Mofo artistic director Chris Twite welcomed the City of Hobart’s support of the event.

“We are thankful for the continued support of the City of Hobart,” Mr Twite said.

“As costs continue to rise for both the festival and those who attend it, these funds help us maintain the high quality of this unique event but also keep the Feast financially accessible.”

Hobart’s Creative City Portfolio Chair John Kelly said; “Each year when we ask our community for feedback in our annual satisfaction survey, events continue to be rated as a high level of importance.”

“High profile events like Dark Mofo offer an incredible economic boost to a range of businesses and service operators in and around Hobart and I think we can all agree it brings a certain buzz to our city for both our residents and visitors that has no compare.”

Dark Mofo’s City of Hobart Winter Feast is from June 13-16 and June 20-23 2024.

Please check the Metro website for information regarding free travel to the festival this year.
