The content of each BiFest differs, dependent on the wishes of the organisers. Features that have been consistent so far include a basic introduction to bisexuality, useful literature, people to chat to, arts/crafts and cake. Other sessions such as activism, fun and games and flirting tend to pop up fairly regularly.
Everyone is welcome, whether they are bi, bicurious, partners, friends or allies of bi people provided they are open and accepting of other attendees.
The first BiFest, in 1999, was a "Festival of Bisexuality", and was combined with a bisexual march through London. Similar smaller events were held in Manchester in 2001 and 2002. However, they did not use the "BiFest" branding, and the idea was not taken up again until 2005, when a new organising team stepped forward to create an annual BiFest in London.
