Join us at Beaker Street Festival, a week-long celebration of science and art in lutruwita/Tasmania – an island where both are abundant.
In 2024, Beaker Street Festival will have a focal weekend of events from August 9 to 11. The immersive program will be centred in southern Tasmania, with a Festival precinct spanning out from the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery in Hobart.
Delve into today’s hottest topics with a program of events, entertainment, exhibitions, and excursions, while experiencing the best of Tasmanian environments and culture.
