Australia's first ever hazelnut festival is happening in the state's north next month.

The Meander Valley Hazelnut Festival will celebrate the arrival of this year's harvest at Hazelbrae Hazelnut Farm in Hagley on February 7.

After two excellent growing seasons, Hazelbrae says it's set to break its own Tasmanian production record of 21t, expecting 25-30t when harvesting starts at the beginning of March.

The Festival will also highlight local tourism and community groups.

Patrons are urged to bring a picnic rug and basket and build a picnic from the selection of Meander Valley’s producers.
