how YOU CAN CONTRIBUTE 

Tickets To The Show

The best way to support your Mardi Gras is by coming along to 'Duels'. It's going to be a fantastic night of entertainment and fun with 12 contestants competing to be crowned the lip-sync champion. Not only will they get the glory of the title, but more importantly, they'll also score a massive $4000+ fundraising prize pack for another LGBTQI organisation that they are representing. See the contestants here

Update: Lip-Sync duels in 2016 sold out in 26 minutes. We are taking a waitlist for people wishing to take up tickets if they become available.

We've sourced some incredible once-in-a-lifetime experiences and some fabulous items that you can bid on both live on the night and through our online Auction. All proceeds from the auction goes toward supporting Mardi Gras to put on the annual festival, plus some new initiatives as we head into our 40th anniversary in 2018. Bid high to secure your favourite item.

Donate to Mardi Gras Arts Workshop Fund

Mardi Gras Arts is the organisation that operates the Mardi Gras Workshop. We build floats for the Mardi Gras Parade and help our communities to build their floats as well. 

We give our communities a place to dream, create and express themselves, all with the aim of producing a fantastic Parade. An army of volunteers supported by a small and dedicated staff run the workshop every year. We still need your help.
