Swinburne and Midsumma banner 2018

Don't miss Melbourne's most famous, family-friendly community day that kicks off summer's beloved three-week Midsumma Festival season.

The Midsumma Carnival will serve-up a tasting plate of performances and personalities from the festival program in one giant showcase – with something for everyone.

Join Swinburne staff and students and check out sports displays, get pooch-smooched at the famous Dog Show, or test out your favourite songs in the Lipsync Limelight competition.

Loaded with food trucks, bars, stalls galore, and many other treats to keep you hydrated, fed and in the community spirit. 

Plus, there'll be an under 18s area hosted by Australia's largest youth organisation, Minus18, a rest zone, and Midsumma Carnival's first-ever tactile installation by Slow Art Collective in collaboration with Description Victoria – for those that want to feel the community vibe across all of their senses.

Bring friends/family, the sunscreen and picnic essentials if you like – but please avoid bringing any glass containers or bottles with you.

Find out more about the 2018 Midsumma Festival. Free public entry; no registrations required.
