On 12 January 2014, Midsumma will transform Birrarung Marr (on the banks of the Yarra River, next to Federation Square) into the queerest party in town, and this is your business' invitation. With an estimated 100,000 attending in 2011, 2012 and 2013, the new layout in 2014 with more space then ever is set to entice even larger crowds in 2014!
Throughout the day, Carnival attendees can sit with a picnic, watch the hours of free entertainment running over multiple stages and activity spaces, cruise the crowd and more importantly - find out about your business or community group! On the lower terrace of Birrarung Marr (directly next to the Yarra River), Midsumma hosts between 100-120 stalls, populated by varying community groups, government agencies, liaison units and commercial businesses.
Stalls come with a variety of capabilities - ie. powered sites, unpowered sites, premium 'corner' sites, double stalls and you can order additional chairs and tables to suit your organisation. This variation is to allow all to be involved, overcoming price-point exclusion. Check out our 2012 Photo Gallery: Carnival Stalls to see the types of stalls we've had in the past.
Want to be a part of the action at Carnival, but unsure if your budget will stretch that far? Midsumma offers an earlybird special to those quick off the mark! All registrations received before the earlybird cutoff date (31 August in 2013) will be charged a special earlybird discounted rate!
