Midsumma Festival kicks off with Midsumma Carnival on Sunday 19 January in Alexandra Gardens and Pride March returning to St Kilda on Sunday 2 February 2020.

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.

Midsumma Festival is Victoria's premier LGBTQIA+ cultural festival, made for and by communities who live with shared experiences around diverse gender and sexuality.

We are a champion of LGBTQIA+ cultures, conversations and events. We are the intersection between generations, people, ideas, stories and experiences - a focal point for connections and belonging. We create inclusive and safe social spaces. We provide platforms for shared experience in a world which often under-represents us. We value diversity and we embrace difference. We increase our communities' profiles and amplify the stories that might otherwise not be seen, heard or felt.

Although the primary three-week festival is held in summer each year, Midsumma works year-round to provide artists, social-changers and culture-makers with support and tools to create, present and promote their work. Midsumma Festival brings a diverse mix of artists, performers, communities and audiences together under a single umbrella for a celebration and innovative presentation of queer arts and culture.

We hope you enjoy our diverse festival program, made up of visual arts, theatre, spoken word, cabaret, film, live music, parties, sport, social events and public forums and events in over 100 different venues.
