About the Festival

The Melba Spiegeltent and Circus Oz will be transformed into the Rainbow Families Hub for Midsumma 2020!

The Hub will present five days of inclusive programming all designed to celebrate what makes our differences special.

There are free activities where you can make your own family flag, item of wearable art or magazine (supported by Archer Magazine) – all created to encourage people to tell their own stories.

Ticketed shows from some of Melbourne’s best family-friendly performers include: How To Be A RockstarChildren Are Stinky, Kid-aoke and Sing-A-Long Dragtime. Come along to experience circus workshops for all ages together with special events, including: Rainbow Families Dance Club (All the Queens Men), Queerspawn (Maeve Marsden). Topping off the week is the brand-new circus show Over the Rainbow Cabaret, hosted by Tessa Waters.
