Encounter Youth hosts the Schoolies Festival.

Schoolies Festival™

Welcome to the official Schoolies Festival™ website. If you are a current year 12 student planning to head to Victor Harbor, South Australia you’ve come to the right page.

Schoolies Festival™ is managed by Encounter Youth, and this website is designed to help inform you (and your family) as you plan and prepare for a safe weekend away celebrating your achievements.

The official Schoolies Festival™ will be held from Friday 24th – Sunday 26th November 2017 in Warland Reserve, Victor Harbor. Thousands of school leavers over the decades have had the time of their lives, and now it’s your turn!

Schoolies Festival™, Victor Harbor

In 1999 Encounter Youth began coordinating a community response to encourage school leavers to party safely and minimise the impact on the local Victor Harbor community. What began as a chaotic mass gathering has been transformed into a structured and organised 3 day event known today as Schoolies Festival™.

Gates are open each night between 7pm – 3am, and there is heaps to explore and enjoy with your mates. To give you a taste of what will be happening…we will have some of Australia’s hottest DJs playing your favourite tunes and for those year 12s who DJ, a chance for you to play in front of your mates in our Battle of the Schoolies Festival™ DJ competition. Each night there’s a different dress up theme party, plus food, drinks and so much more!

The Encounter Youth volunteers known as the Green Team, will be around the entire weekend at Schoolies Festival™. They will be a great source of information, support and an extra friend to help you celebrate.

So get prepared early, buy your ticket, book a seat on the Free MAC Schoolies Festival™ Bus and arrange your accommodation now – because no one wants to miss out!

Enjoy taking a good look around this website and read all about how you can plan for a safe, fun and memorable Schoolies Festival™. We look forward to seeing you in November!
