Midsumma acknowledges that Aboriginal Australians are the first peoples of these lands. We pay our respects to all Aboriginal Australians, past and present, and we recognise their continuing spiritual and cultural connection to the land. We would like to acknowledge that Aboriginal sovereignty has not been ceded.
Midsumma Festival occurs across the Kulin Nations on the lands of Boon Wurrung, Taungurung, Dja Dja Wurrung, Wathaurong and Wurundjeri (Woiwurrung) peoples.
Midsumma Festival takes place between High Summer and Late Summer according to the Wurundjeri calendar of seasons, on whose land much of this Festival is taking place.
