What is Launceston Alive?

Crowds pouring into the Albert Hall in preparation for the 2015 Face To Face

Launceston Alive is North-East Tasmania’s annual Easter Community Festival.  It is steered by a committee of community representatives from church, community services, arts, academic, and business sectors. We aim to unite our city in celebrating the original Easter message in an engaging, contemporary manner which shows how vitally relevant it is for everyone in today’s world.

Each year Launceston Alive attracts people of all ages, cultures and a diverse array of interests to its multifaceted four-day festival program, which includes art, music and food, seminars, presentations, workshops, celebrations and family fun activities. One of the highlights is the Good Friday evening public meeting, usually attracting around a thousand people who come to hear a line-up of world-class speakers at one of Launceston’s premier venues. This year the Good Friday meeting will be held at the impressive Launceston Conference Centre.

Launceston Alive produces a full-colour program of events, which is distributed to civic leaders, organisations, churches and community groups prior to the festival. The program includes messages from some of our nation’s, state’s and city’s leaders, and names and logos  of Launceston Alive partners and sponsors. Launceston Alive welcomes sponsorship and offers of support. Sponsors also receive invitations to the exclusive ticketed VIP event where they can meet our keynote speakers and other VIPs.

WHY A CITY-WIDE EASTER CELEBRATION?

Multicultural Show

Easter is a time to commemorate and reflect upon the most profound moment in world history. In a unique way, Easter brings people from diverse backgrounds together and provides opportunity for cooperative, cohesive celebration of life, hope and the prospect of peace.

Launceston Easter Community Festival commenced formally in 2014 as a collaborative effort between members of the church, community services, arts, academic and business sectors of Launceston. In 2017 the annual festival has been re-named Launceston Alive. It is an event of regional and state significance, attracting interstate and international visitors. It inspires and invigorates the creativity, life, businesses and activities of our city and state.

We welcome you to join us in April for the rich program of festival events around Launceston as we explore this year’s theme, Just in Time.
