Carnival dates have been confirmed for the 2021/2022 Tasmanian Christmas Carnivals.
In addition to the announcement of the six carnival dates, the Sports Carnival Association of Tasmania (SCAT) have announced a range of new initiatives ahead of the series.
The historical series will have new branding, to TasCarnivals, along with a new website and broadcast partner for the season.
“TasCarnivals gives us a fresh look on the series which was previously referred to as SCAT. SCAT still exists behind the scenes as our entity name, but our frontward look will now be called TasCarnivals. The new logo @TasCarnivals is a modern take, with all our digital assets and accounts being under that story,” TasCarnivals President Duncan Murfet said.
In addition to the logo, the announcement of additional funding from the Tasmanian Government earlier this year, has enabled the series to invest in a number of new initiatives, including a new website; tascarnivals.com.au and an exciting announcement about broadcasting.
Tasmanian company Duff TV have been engaged to live-stream the entire series. Duff TV are experienced in the TasCarnival series, having live-streamed the Hobart andBurnie Carnivals in recent years, along with a range of sporting events across Tasmania.
“Live-streaming is a particular focus for us in this series. Some carnivals have conducted their own in recent years with success, so it was natural for us to provide a consistent look and feel across the series.
“By owning the broadcast rights and capturing those iconic moments digitally, it will make it easier to provide networks with highlight packages after each carnival and feed our social channels. One of our goals moving forward is to get some airtime on free to air networks, which we’re working on,” Murfet added.
Once again, the series starts in Rosebery with running, cycling, woodchopping and rock drilling, then a big week between Christmas and New Years Eve, before concluding at the East Coast in St Helens.
The 2021/2022 series dates are;
· Rosebery – December 18
· Hobart – December 27
· Launceston – December 28
· Devonport – December 29
· Burnie – December 31
· St Helens – January 22
Entries will open soon.
