About the Show
Don’t miss Melbourne’s most famous family-friendly community day that kicks off summer’s beloved three-week Midsumma Festival season. Midsumma Carnival will serve-up a tasting plate of performances and personalities from the festival program – in one giant showcase – with something for everyone.
Check out sports displays, get pooch-smooched at the famous Dog Show, or test out your favourite songs in the Lipsync Limelight competition.
Food trucks, bars and stalls galore, all top-full of treats to keep you hydrated, fed and in the community spirit.
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 the kids, the sunscreen and a picnic lunch if you like – but please don’t bring any glass containers or bottles with you! We’d hate to see paws, feet and knees coming out a little worse for wear after a lovely day on the grassy knolls of Alexandra Gardens.
