Now in its eighth year, the annual Summersets Arts Festival returns to Scarborough with 17 days of free and affordable entertainment for everyone - transforming parks, buildings and neighbourhoods into pop-up venues, creative spaces and hubs of activity.

Jam packed with comedy, music, circus, theatre, art, children’s activities and more, the 2016 festival will see the award-winning Sunset Veranda pop-up venue return to our shores for another amazing season of world class entertainment, once again as an official Fringe World venue.

The popular Summerset Concert celebrating the closing weekend of the festival is also back for another year with  national headline acts taking the stage alongside local WA talent.

In addition, the Summerset Arts Festival 2016 will feature a number of other fantastic events such as Sensational String Stories, Sunset Wine, Feed Box Market and much more!

The MRA is proud to be a festival partner, with the City of Stirling, for the third year running.
