2017 Victorian Disability Sport & Recreation Festival
The 2017 Victorian Disability Sport and Recreation Festival will be held on Friday 1 December, 10am-3pm at Crown Riverwalk.
The festival began in 2010 and coincides with 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.
Try every adaptive sport imaginable, meet Paralympians and discover the joy of movement at this free, accessible, family friendly event.
