Junction arts festival is a deliciously Tasmanian program featuring the island's best artists, food and wine, architecture and music.
Get set for four wild days and nights of celebration from September 4 to 8, where locals and visitors come together and experience all that the northern Tasmanian region has to offer.
You'll discover unique art installations and extraordinary performances created by Tasmanian artists which can't be seen anywhere else.
Every Junction Arts Festival journey starts at the Festival Hub in Prince's Square - an illuminated wonderland that will host chefs, live music, bars, fire and cabaret.
Fuel your festival adventure with Crossfire Kitchen, a collaboration between Junction and Timbre's Matt Adams, with new guest culinary legends on each night serving their favourite campfire dish. Expect smoked meats and locally-sourced sides cooked over coals.
Sit fountain-side with a glass of local wine, or meet mates after work before heading into The Fountain Bar to see a band, there are over 32 events to choose from, curated to ensure you can experience it all.
Program highlights include an after-dark night walk featuring newly commissioned immersive art installations that will sizzle the senses. Let your map guide you as you discover horse-float karaoke, digitally-mapped projections, campfire sessions at the Tasmanian Aboriginal Centre, or join in on collaborative soft sculpture or poetry as part of Nightlight.
Treat yourself to a triple bill of cabaret in The Little Devil tent featuring acclaimed Australian performer, Paul Capsis, award-winning comedian, Jude Perl plus Tasmanian country music darling, Ange Boxall.
Families will be spoilt for choice at the Festival with The Amazing Drumming Monkeys and The Listies plus the return of Junction's iconic bike ride, The Tweed Run.
After working your way through the program, you can spend a Saturday and Sunday with a picnic in the Square, sound tracked by acoustic Tasmanian singer-songwriters on the outdoor acoustic stage.
