Midwinta Gala

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, the Midwinta Gala has been postponed to 2022. The Midwinta Gala is quite possibly the glitziest event in the LGBTIQ calendar. Midwinta Gala aims to raise funds for the development of new and aspiring talent in visual and performing arts for next year's Midsumma Festival.
