Midsumma Festival 2015: 18 January — 08 February

Midsumma Festival has been held annually since 1988. Melbourne's Queer community and friends come together for this collaborative, innovative celebration of queer arts and culture, presented over three weeks from mid January to early February every year. In 2014, a Midwinta Festival was also held July — August.

Such a large festival involves many months, and even years, of planning with many milestones and deadlines occurring throughout the year, as summarised in the panel on the right.

There are many opportunities for you to be involved, for example as a volunteer; as an event producer, artist or performer; as a stallholder or food vendor at Carnival; marching at Pride March; or being a spectator or participant in the diverse range of events held as part of the festival. If you have some ideas for an event in a future festival, but don't know how to bring that to fruition, please get in touch.
