Get ready for 19 days of free and affordable entertainment when the City of Stirling’s Summerset Arts Festival returns this Summer for an amazing tenth year. 
 
From Wednesday 24 January to Sunday 11 February the festival will transform the City’s parks, buildings and neighbourhoods into pop-up venues, creative spaces and hubs of activity. Jam packed with comedy, music, circus, art, children’s activities and more, there’s something for everyone in this year’s program. 
 
Celebrating the City’s unique lifestyle, diversity, heritage and culture, the festival is expected to attract more than 30,000 people to over 50 events all around the City of Stirling.
 
The award-winning Sunset Veranda pop-up venue returns to our shores for another season of world class entertainment, with an exciting assortment of Fringe World shows and family fun. Come grab a drink and bite to eat, relax and enjoy the stunning sunset views.
