Belgrave Survival Day celebrates Indigenous culture with live music, dance, discussion, food and activities for all the family.
Belgrave Survival Day is an annual event on January 26th (Australia Day) and presents an opportunity for people in the area to celebrate the survival of Australian Indigenous people, their culture and heritage.
Belgrave Survival Day was first held on January 26th 2008. The event was started by a small group of local hills residents. It was held out the back of the Cameo Cinema. The only Indigenous act in the first year was a dance troupe from Healesville.
The event moved in 2011 to its current location at Borthwick Park Reserve in Belgrave.
BSD has become a prominent annual fixture of the Dandenong Ranges community, where it regularly attracts 2000-3000 attendees, featuring several entertainment acts, with stalls featuring vendors (food, drink, books, merchandise, information, community groups and Indigenous sector organizations).
