Now in its 10th year, the annual Summerset Arts Festival returns to Scarborough with 19 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 2018 festival will see the award-winning Sunset Veranda pop-up venue return to our shores for another amazing season of world class entertainment.

The popular Summerset Concert celebrating the closing weekend of the festival is also back for another year with  national headline acts Harts and The VANNS taking the stage alongside local WA talent The Money War and Elli Schoen (solo).

The festival will be launched with Seaside Spectacular, a free community event which comprises amazing aerial acrobats, enchanting lolly pop lycras, trance-inducing mermaids and much more for an evening of family friendly fun.
