Camperdown Memorial Rest Park in Newtown as the new location of FAIR DAY 2017!

Fair Day is proudly supported by ANZ.

See the ANZ Main Stage, DJ Tent, Sports Village and Doggywood line-up here!

One of Sydney's most-loved annual community events for LGBTQI people and their friends and families, Fair Day attracts over 80,000 people for a day of fun in the sun.

With over 220 stalls you’ll be able to picnic on a wonderful selection of food stalls, while perusing wares from local community vendors and learn more about local LGBTQI organisations. And of course, don’t forget to bring your furry friends to strut their stuff at the famous Doggywood, bigger and better than ever as we present this iconic event with ACON.

For a more intimate special experience there will also be the opportunity to sit and chat with one of the original members of the 78’er group, and hear first-hand what that very first Mardi Gras was like in 1978. Fair Day favourite community groups including Dykes on Bikes, the Team Sydney & many more will be joining us to celebrate.

Fair Day is the perfect hybrid of picnic and party. Come dressed in your most outrageous colourful picnic couture and you can strut your stuff on the Main Stage for Fashions of the Fair, to be in the running for fabulous prizes!

Applications for Fair Day stalls have now closed. Manage your Fair Day stall here.

Fair Day is a FREE event. Please consider making a gold coin (or more) donation at the gates.
