The Hobart City Council is responsible for the delivery of some of the state's best known event activities.
A highlight is the world class Salamanca Market held each and every Saturday in historic Salamanca Place.
Other major events include the Myer Hobart Christmas Pageant which sees the Hobart Central Business District come alive with thousands of spectators lining the route to watch the parade; and the annual Carols by Candlelight The festive season continues with the annual The Taste of Tasmania, featuring seven days and nights of events and activities. Hobart's waterfront will be filled with aromas, sights and sounds as we celebrate contemporary Tasmanian produce.
In addition, the Council supports the City of Hobart Floral Show program.
The City of Hobart is committed to making our venues and events accessible so that they can be enjoyed by all visitors. The City of Hobart Event Accessibility Guide contains information that will assist guests with access and mobility issues at our major events.
