Our communities shine in the sun at Fair Day, Mardi Gras’ free family-friendly carnival of rainbow festivities, featuring a plethora of activities for the young and old, the tame and the bold!

Every year, a melting pot of 70,000 smiling faces gather together in the park to celebrate not only the beginning of Mardi Gras, but also the power and beauty of diversity.

With over 250 stalls, Fair Day will spread out through the entire Park and features the Sports Village, Doggywood, the ANZ Main stage and the new Tropicana Bar featuring DJs Beth Yen and GI Jode.

Stalls that highlight the amazing diversity of the LGBTQI community include the 78ers, Queer Screen, Sydney Gay & Lesbian Choir, Dykes on Bikes, Gender Centre, Rainbow Families, Wett Ones Swimming Club, Sydney Roller Derby, Glitoris, Harbour City Bears, the Sydney Femme Guild and the Australian Gay and Lesbian Archives.  

There is always something for everyone at Fair Day, even our fur babies are a part of the action. Bring your most fabulous dog down to Fair Day to strut their stuff at our world-famous Doggywood competition. Find all the details here!  

The ANZ Main Stage morning program will feature community performances from the NSW Police Band and the Swing Out Sydney dancers and the Sydney Gay & Lesbian Choir to start the day off. The official ceremonies start at midday hosted by 78er and broadcaster Julie McCrossin. 

Mardi Gras legends Bob Downe and Cindy Pastel then take over proceedings as they host the start of an amazing early afternoon program of cabaret including performances by Shauna Jensen, Mama Alto, Greg Gould, Bogan Villea and Miss First Nations winner Josie Baker. Jordan Raskopolous then takes over the MC duties for a late afternoon, all women line-up of live music from Kira Puru and Asta. Two of Sydney’s iconic DJs Sveta and Kate Monroe will then get everyone up and dancing from the Main Stage from 5:30pm until close at 8pm.
