Mardi Gras Festival 2016 photoS

What a fantastic festival it was! Thank you to EVERYONE who came along to the events. Parade was one of our biggest ever with more than 170 floats and 12,500 participants. Party was a sell-out in 2016 with more than 12,000 people dancing all through the night. Fair Day was another success with more than 70,000 soaking up the sun and entertainment on offer! Click into the galleries below to see some of our favourite photos.

Mardi Gras Festival 2015 PHOTOS

The Sydney Mardi Gras theme for 2015 was 'PASSION'. Across all the events, our LGBTQI communities showed us who and what they love, what moves them, and what they want for their lives and worlds.

To find your PASSION is to discover who you are - and there's nothing worth celebrating more than that.
