Team Melbourne LGBTIQ+ Sports Festival

About the Festival

The LGBTIQ Sports Festival run by Team Melbourne is held early late January/ early February each year. Taking place at Footscray Park and Victoria Univeristy, the Sports Festival is a celebration of LGBTIQ sport and recreation in Melbourne and aims to do three things; to get more of the LGBTIQ community involved in sport, promote the important health benefits to sport participation, and to build a stronger connection across Victoria’s LGBTIQ sporting and recreation groups.

The LGBTIQ Sports Festival is the single largest annual event of its kind in Australia and brings together LGBTIQ sporting and recreation clubs for the ultimate come and try day. Supported and funded by Maribyrnong City Council, the LGBTIQ Sports Festival will provide countless free sessions for individuals and groups interested in sport and recreation within the LGBTIQ community.

Featured activities include AFL 9s, rugby union, volleyball, swimming, rowing and tennis.

This year’s coming event will also have a queer family space presented by Proud2Play, adventure activities and also performers to entertain throughout the day.
