Midsumma Presents — Curated by Midsumma

Midsumma Presents is Midsumma's producing arm of the festival, where we collaborate with outstanding artists and cultural institutions from Victoria and around the world. It's intersectional, it's vibrant and it brings people together. Experience fresh collaborations between Midsumma Festival and some of Victoria’s outstanding cultural institutions.

The Midsumma Presents program also incorporates the Major Events and the Safe(R) Space programs.

  • MAJOR EVENTS: All our much loved Major Events are free and all are held on Sundays:
    • Midsumma Carnival, the festival opening event held on 22 January 11am-10pm at the Alexandra Gardens
    • Midsumma Pride March, held on 5 February 11am-4pm in Fitzroy St and Catani Gardens, St Kilda
    • Victoria's Pride Street Party, held on 12 February 11am-9pm around Gertrude and Smith Streets, Fitzroy


  • A SAFE(R) SPACE: This year's focused highlight, commissioned and produced by Midsumma as part of Midsumma Presents, A Safe(R) Space is an artistic exploration of intersectional identity between different facets of Queer communities.
