The Victorian Disability Sport and Recreation Festival began in 2010 and celebrates International Day of People with Disability each year.
It is a unique community event that promotes and celebrates physically active lifestyles for people of all abilities.
The festival offers Victorians with, and without, disability the opportunity to explore and experience accessible and inclusive sport and recreation through hands-on activities and information sharing.
In 2016, 65% of people who had not been involved in any sport or recreational activities before coming to the festival, found a program to join.
Featuring over 30 exhibitors and three activity zones, come and try every adaptive sport imaginable, watch a disabled water skiing demonstration and meet Paralympians at this free, accessible, family-friendly event.
You can also witness the Law Enforcement Torch Run, with over 100 police and Special Olympics athletes running from the Victoria Police Centre to the festival.
Come and celebrate International Day of People with Disability by getting active!
