Want to host your own event as part of OUTintheOPEN Festival Shepparton (6 – 8 Nov 2015)?

OUTintheOPEN is Shepparton’s newest festival celebrating community diversity.

OUTintheOPEN was developed to address some of the inequalities faced by the local gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer (GLBTIQ) & allied communities and to build a more inclusive community in Greater Shepparton. EVERYONE is welcome to get involved!

OUTintheOPEN is a project led by Kildonan UnitingCare and is proudly supported by many other organisations and community groups.

The festival will consist of a health/wellbeing forum at Goulburn Valley Hotel function rooms and a Carnival day on the first weekend in November at the Queens Gardens. Other events will be held during the weekend across the City of Greater Shepparton. This is where YOU come in!
