Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras is an all-embracing festival full of electric, eccentric and eclectic events, every one of them celebrating the power and beauty of diversity. It is one of the City’s major annual events, attracting tens of thousands of interstate and international visitors every year, making it one of the biggest and most loved festivals in Australia.
As part of the semi-curated festival, we produce a number of key events such as the Parade, Fair Day, Laneway and Party and additional cultural events, such as Queer Thinking. We also work closely with local venues and a range of producers. The amount of publicity Mardi Gras creates is massive, reaching across the country and beyond, drawing in new audiences, engaging the wider communities and spreading the love! Being involved in Mardi Gras is being part of something amazing – nearly three weeks of fun, celebration and festival buzz!
Expressions Of Interest for the 2016 Festival are open now. Submissions close on Monday 7 September 2015.
