Summerset Arts Festival - About
20 JAN - 5 FEB 2017


The ninth annual Summerset Arts Festival returned in 2017 after 17 days of incredible entertainment delivering over 50 events throughout the City of Stirling.
The much-loved Sunset Veranda was a highlight once again, looking magnificent in its new home at Brighton Reserve, Scarborough. Over 10,000 visitors enjoyed Fringe World shows, delicious treats from The Fish Boss, drinks a plenty and stunning sunsets.
Popular shows such as the Summerset Comedy Gala, The Eco Faeries Show and Beyond Hitsville delighted packed audiences, and many loved the free arts workshops, beach yoga and live open-air acoustic performances. 
The final weekend delivered the crowning glory of the festival with the epic Summerset Concert drawing big crowds to the Stirling Civic Gardens. With impressive live sets from locals Jack Davies and Lucy Peach, followed by rising stars Cub Sport, and our homegrown heroes Methyl Ethel, it was a musical feast for the ears. 
A huge 'Thank You' to everyone who attended, all our fabulous sponsors, suppliers and vendors, and most importantly our residents and local community! We hope you enjoyed it!
