Feast Festival is Adelaide’s Premier LGBTQIA+ Arts and Cultural Festival. Founded in 1997 by professional arts and community cultural workers Helen Bock, Damien Carey, Luke Cutler, and Margie Fischer, Feast was created to provide a safe space and platform for the LGBTQIA+ community, where artists could freely express themselves, something that didn’t exist at that time.
Now in its 26th year, Feast is an open-access Festival that showcases emerging and established artists from both local and interstate LGBTQIA+ communities.
Over 500 Artists will present 80 Events across multi-disciplinary art forms including Cabaret, Drag, Visual Art, Poetry, Comedy, Film, Burlesque, Music, and Dance.
Much more than just the arts, Feast is a cultural festival that brings together community with event offerings such as the Queer Wedding Expo, LGBTQIA+ Historical Tours and Talks, Quiz nights, Drag Bingo, Roller Derby Bouts, Pool Parties, Fashion Parades, Speed dating and more!
