Midsumma Returns in 2022

Midsumma Festival
Past event in Melbourne
23 Jan to 13 Feb, 2022

Midsumma returns to its rightful place in the middle of summer after being bumped to Autumn last year by Miss Rona. The LGBTQIA+ festival is back with a stellar program featuring signature events Carnival and Pride March as well as a huge lineup of arts and cultural events.

As usual, the 3-week festival kicks off with Carnival in Alexandra Gardens for a day in the park featuring 2 stages of entertainment and a T-Dance pumping out tunes into the night. 

The Pride March takes place two weeks later on 6 March. The parade makes its way down Fitzroy Street in St Kilda before errupting into a party at Catani Gardens.

This year’s festival features an added bonus - a special one-day street party in Melbourne’s inner-north to celebrate 40 years since the decriminalisation of homosexuality in Victoria.

Check the Midsumma website for the full program of events.
