The Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade is one of the world’s largest and best-loved LGBTQI celebrations, a chance for all of the colours of the kaleidoscope to come together, to commemorate, celebrate, and communicate the universal message of diversity, equality, and infinite love.

Join hundreds of thousands of spectators lining the route, as 10,000 people parade with pride along Oxford and Flinders Streets in an explosion of creative and political expression, a captivating extravaganza of lavish floats, satirical statements, spectacular costumes and showstopping moments.


Make sure you arrive early (and prepared) to experience one of the world’s most memorable Parades. Check back here for up-to-date information on transport and road closures. Alternatively, save yourself the best seats in the house in one of our exclusive Viewing Areas – stay tuned for more information!


The Parade runs on the generosity and passion of two thousand volunteers. There are plenty of volunteer roles available, and we’ll even reward you for your talent and time. Be one of the stars that make it all happen!
