The Rural Youth Organisation of Tasmania have announced the postponement of Agfest 2022.
Originally slated for May 4 to 7, the event has been moved to August 24 to 27 due to concerns about running an economically viable event.
Rural Youth state president Josh Mison said the decision was made after careful consideration by event organisers.
"The safety of our patrons, members and exhibitors remains paramount as well as ensuring the financial viability of our event," Mr Mison said.
"We know the Tasmanian community will continue to support Rural Youth and Agfest and we thank you for your ongoing support and patience."
Tourism, Hospitality and Events Minister Sarah Courtney said Agfest was one of the highlights of the Tasmanian rural calendar and the government had been working hard to support the event to go ahead in 2022.
Primary Industries and Water Minister Guy Barnett said Agfest was an important event for the primary industries sector and he looked forward to attending the event in August.
"We are committed to working with Rural Youth Tasmania and supporting their future plans, and I congratulate them for their dedication to ensuring a COVID-safe event for all Tasmanians," Mr Barnett said.
This year's Agfest was a sold-out event, with numbers capped at 10,000 per day.
