The Summer Sessions

Festivals and Celebrations

5 Feb 2021 to 20 Feb 2021 Once Only Event

Live arts makes its return under The Big Top for Geelong Arts Centre’s exciting 2021 summer season.

Proudly supported by the Victorian Government and Major Artistic Partner, Deakin University, the exciting event runs from February 5 to 20 and will include an array of dazzling performances and creative, educational activities outdoors as live arts makes its long-awaited return.

With 15 dynamic, dazzling acts from country to classics, right through to comedy, and a range of creative industries networking events, the dynamic Summer Sessions program has something for everyone, no matter their taste.

Hosted beneath the canopy of theatre’s iconic Big Top – located on the beautiful Rippleside Park foreshore – there will be stunning views, food truck with tacos and quesadillas from the team at Sidewalk Cantina, barbecue bliss slung by Adrian Lal and the team at The Gypsy’s Lunchbox, and a fully-stocked bar to enhance your entertainment experience.

Committed to providing a safe social experience, Geelong Arts Centre scrupulously adheres to COVID-Safe practices, including the mandatory wearing of face masks, provision of ample sanitisation stations and design of physically distanced performance spaces for audiences.
