Hobart Race Village now open!

The Hobart Race Village continues to grow in stature with its position firmly cemented as the ultimate celebration location for the conclusion of the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race.

Open from 1200 to 2200 on 27 December, and then from 1000 to midnight until the end of the race (or later pending the arrival of the Line Honours boat), the village will remain open until 0130 for New Year’s for all visitors to watch the fireworks and bring in 2018.

2017 will see many enhancements for an even more enjoyable visitor experience with a Carlton & United Breweries activation and wide variety of food and beverage options catering to every taste.

As has been the case in previous years live performances on the race village stage will keep the crowds entertained in between official race presentations. Meanwhile Hobart’s very own 7HOFM will be broadcasting live to keep the party atmosphere flowing with one special highlight to watch out for….the Tassie’s Got Talent competition demonstrating that Tassie definitely does have talent on and off the water

Children’s face painters, games and activities in the race village will keep the younger race attendees busy while ‘Tommy Choo Choo’ will be providing transport to and from the Taste of Tasmania festival taking place nearby.

Along with their shop in Sydney, Musto will be selling race merchandise while hugely celebrated Tasmanian photographer Richard Bennett will be displaying his imagery taken over 50 years of Sydney to Hobart races at the Maritime Museum of Tasmania.

As with Sydney the Hobart Race Village would not be possible without the support of major sponsor, Rolex, and the many other sponsors including Mumm Champagne, Carlton & United Breweries. Year on year our local supporters TasPorts, Tourism Tasmania and Hobart City Council help to build on previous successes and without their hard work the events around the race conclusion would not be possible. 7HOFM continues to play a valuable role as the official broadcaster from the race village while Piper’s Brook Vineyard supply their fantastic products. This year we welcome the University of Tasmania as a new and exciting sponsor with a strong alignment to the race.
