Indulge by Festivale

Soak up the atmosphere as you sit at your table on the playing field of UTAS Stadium. Sample an array of signature dishes from local vendors in a carefully curated menu and enjoy a classic Tasmanian beer, wine, cider or spirit as you relax in the incredible ambience of the stadium. Enjoy time with family and friends and dine on the playing field in a once-in-a-lifetime experience at the stadium (how many people can say they have dined on the grounds of UTAS stadium)? There will be an incredible entertainment line-up of solo artists, duos and jazz bands designed for you to listen as you sit back, relax and indulge in Tasmania’s finest produce.
