This year’s Estia Greek Festival marks 26 years since the event began celebrating the culture, heritage, and tradition of our Australian Greek Community.

The Hodgman Liberal Government is proud to fund the Festival, and this year we provided $13,000 towards celebrations.

Events celebrating the many vibrant cultures in Tasmania are important as they strengthen community ties and promote understanding of the diverse cultural groups that call Tasmania home.

Presented by the Hellenic-Australian community, the festival is a showcase of Greek music, dancing, sport, language and cultural studies, and of course delicious food and drink.

The Festival has grown in popularity over the years, and typically attracts around 10,000 people seeking a taste of Greek culture.

Congratulations to the Tasmanian Greek community and the many volunteers who have worked hard over many years to make the Estia Greek Festival the great success that it is.
