Ballarat Frolic Festival 8th to 14th of November 2018

After a fabulous 2017 debut the Ballarat Frolic Festival (BFF) is back in 2018 with even more fun and excitement!

Ballarat Frolic Festival aims to foster a healthy LGBT+ community for Ballarat and surrounds while providing positive visibility to the broader Ballarat community. It is a not-for-profit festival run by a small team of Ballarat local volunteers who aim to support and show off the diversity of the region! The festival is an inclusive event that the whole community is welcome to attend.
