2014 ENTERTAINMENT PROGRAM

We have something for everyone at A Taste of the Huon. Entertainment and activities for the kids that will keep them busy all day and allow parents a quiet moment to relax and take in the cultural delights and taste sensations we have on offer. The main stage will play host to an eclectic line up of musicians and the large grounds will cater to our roving entertainers and buskers.
