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 annual official Schoolies Festival™ will be held from the 23rd – 25th of November 2018 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. Each night there’s a different dress up theme party, plus food, drinks and so much more!
With 2018 being the 20th year of Schoolies Festival™, we are busy hand crafting a bunch of stellar venues for YOU, the Class of 2018, to enjoy with your mates! Keep up with the latest on the Schoolies Festival™ Facebook page and we’ll have more info here for you soon!
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, and book a seat on the Free MAC Schoolies Festival™ Bus – 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!
