The Taste Festival is Tasmania's largest food and wine festival. The Festival generally operates 28 December - 3 January and celebrated its 20th year in 2008/09. The festival is held in Hobart's Salamanca and waterfront areas. The festival is run by Hobart City Council.
The Taste focuses on promoting Tasmanian produce wherever possible. Visitation is estimated at up to 500,000 people each year over the one week period.
The Taste Festival is the combination of the Taste of Tasmania and the Hobart Summer Festival. Following the culmination of the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race, and associated boost in tourism, the Festival takes advantage of Hobart's warm summer, picturesque location and long hours of sunlight to showcase the best in Tasmanian produce, arts, crafts, and entertainment.
