Cygnet Folk Festival

A Georgian Supra is a feast with a difference. An evening of song, speeches and delicious Georgian-inspired Tasmanian food.

A Tamada (toast master) is appointed to orchestrate the proceedings, introducing toasts in a specific order and entertaining the guests with his knowledge and wit. Guests can respond to the toast and on the call of “garmajos” everyone empties their glass, or cow's horn if one is handy. Each toast is followed by a song, some joyful, some sad, all beautiful in keeping with the mood.

Guests will enjoy amazing Tasmanian food, moving stories and spine tingling singing. Seated at long tables with shared plates of food served throughout the evening, guests are invited to join in songs, led by Georgian choir masters and ethnomusicologists Nino Tsitsivshvli and Joseph Jordania.

It's at the Port Cygnet Sailing Club with a view to die for.

Local wine, beer and non-alcoholic beverages can be purchased from the bar for reasonable prices. Tickets for the Supra including all food and entertainment: $65 per person, children 5 and under free.

Nino and Joseph will also be running a Georgian Song Masterclass from 11am to 3.30pm Friday 8th January if you are keen to immerse yourself in all things Georgian and learn to sing some of the traditional choral songs before the feast.

Tickets to the Supra are an add on to the Full Weekend tickets which can be purchased here.
