Another street party is coming to the Kingsway.
In partnership with Breath of Fresh Air Festival and Cityprom, the Kingsway Association presents A Day on the Kingsway this Sunday.
Open from 11am to 8pm, the laneway will be buzzing with Tasmanian food, drink, including Landale Farm’s delicious pork products and a news Kingsway brand of gin.
Earthy Eats owner-operator Laura Danderian and Kingsway Bar owner-operator Lee Edrich started the Kingsway Association to increase business to the area.
“We really liked the idea of coming together as businesses and increasing business for each other, rather than acting like competitors,” Ms Danderian said.
The line-up boasts a great list of local talent including Emma Anglesey, Brad Gillies, Kylie Lorenz, Mick Attard and Yyan Ng.
“The weather is looking fine so it is a really nice time to come out and enjoy a winter festival,” Ms Danderian.
“It is nice to get people out and about in the colder months.”
The Kingway’s partnership with BOFA has helped the laneway secure an appearance by The Tale of Ruby Rose director Roger Scholes .
The film is set in Tasmania’s Central Highlands and is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year.
The movie follows protagonist Ruby Rose through her struggles between darkness and light, and her dangerous journey through the valley.
Ms Danderian said Scholes appearance will be a salute to living in country Tasmania.
The Tale of Ruby Rose will be screened at Village at 7.25pm on Saturday.
Tickets are available at breath-of-fresh-air.com.au.
Storyteller Bert Spinks will also be at A Day on the Kingsway, sharing his quintessential Tasmanian stories.
