Event Registrations for the 2016 Midsumma Festival have now closed and we are now finalising the program, which will hit the streets, and become available online, in late November or very early December 2015.

Midwinta Festival:
25 July — 09 August 2015

Since 2014, a Midwinta Festival has also been held in July and August.

The central focus of the Midwinta Festival is the Midwinta Gala Ball, which this year was held on 7 August 2015.

Next Midsumma Festival:
17 January — 07 February 2016

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.

These festivals involve many months, and even years, of planning with many milestones and deadlines occurring throughout the year, as summarised in the Important Dates panel. There are many opportunities for you to be involved, for example as a volunteer; as an event producer, artist or performer; as a sponsor or advertiser; 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.
