Whittlesea Pride Festival


Whittlesea Community Connections and partnering organisations have come together to plan the first ever Whittlesea Pride Festival on May 7th at Meadowglen International Athletics Stadium! Come and be a part of the magic as we transform the stadium into a vibrant rainbow of color, music, and dance.

From live performances to interactive activities, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. Get your groove on at the dance floor, explore the arts and crafts activities, or take a break and indulge in the delicious food trucks.

Join us for a day of excitement, entertainment, and fun as we celebrate the vibrant tapestry of our community. Our festival will be a celebration of all identities, backgrounds, and orientations, and we welcome all families to join in the festivities.

We are committed to creating a welcoming and safe environment where everyone can be themselves and express their unique cultural identity. It will be the perfect opportunity for you and your loved ones to join the fun and show your support for the LGBTQIA+ community in Melbourne’s Northern Suburbs!
