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 three-day event known today as Schoolies Festival.

7:00pm–3:00am

Gates are open each night between 7:00pm–3:00am, and there are heaps of venues to explore and enjoy with your friends.

Dress-up Theme Party

WATCH THIS SPACE! The Schoolies Festival™ 2020 theme is chosen by YOU! 

Encounter Youth's Green Team volunteers will be on-hand to assist.

Encounter Youth’s Green Team volunteers will be around the entire weekend at Schoolies Festival™. They’re on-hand to provide you with any information you need and any support you require. Their goal is to ensure you have a great time celebrating!

A FEW HELPFUL TIPS… 

You will need to purchase a Victor Harbor Schoolies Festival ticket from Encounter Youth to gain access to the Festival if you are not staying at our Partner or Endorsed Accommodation providers.

Bring your ticket and valid photo ID to the Ticketing & Wristband Collection Area, and we’ll swap it for your official Schoolies Festival wristband for entry into Schoolies Festival.
