Melbourne’s queer community and friends come together for this collaborative, innovative celebration of queer arts and culture, presented over three weeks, usually from mid January to early February every year. Due to COVID-19, in 2021 Midsumma Festival will be held from 19 April to 5 May 2021.
Midsumma Festival is Melbourne’s annual queer celebration, a smorgasbord of gay arts and cultural events (more than 180) spread over around 100 different venues throughout Melbourne. The festival attracts a total audience of more than 260,000 people.
The annual Midsumma Pride March is usually held in late January or early February, but in 2021 will be on 23 May from 11am.
