The Canberra SpringOUT Pride Festival kicks off on Saturday the 2nd November with the AIDS Action Council Fair Day at Gorman House. An event that attracts 2000 queer Canberrans to network, find community resources, catch up and play.

On the 9th November, SpringOUT will be celebrating ‘20 years of Queer’ with our fabulous ‘20th Anniversary Masked Spring Ball’.

The weekend of the 16th is the Braddon street party, ‘YESFEST’ in addition to the Queer History Conference, celebrating 50 years of queer activism in the capital. The Tuggeranong Arts Centre is also holding a festival to celebrate queer culture in southern Canberra.

The 23rd November is Canberra BUSHDANCE. This event is a sell out every year, so get in quick to secure your tickets! And for the women of Canberra, get along to Fruit Tingles Women’s Dance at the Majura Community Centre.

2019 Pride season concludes on 24th November with the SpringOUT Big Community Picnic in Glebe Park. With more performers, more shade and more activities than ever before to celebrate 2019 as our biggest queer year!

Canberra SpringOUT Pride Festival is run by a volunteer committee, with support from the ACT Government and event stakeholders. If you’d like to get involved email info@springout.com.au.
