2024 Festival: 16 February – 3 March

No future is a match for a future where we’re together.

We’re thrilled to unveil the 2024 Festival and the 46th Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras. The 2024 Festival will call on our communities to imagine and demand the world for ourselves we rightfully deserve under the theme Our Future…

From Friday 16 February to Sunday 3 March 2024, we will be charging into our future with our biggest and boldest program in years.

Bursting at the sequinned seams, our expansive Festival program celebrates the entire LGBTQIA+ community, with over 100 electrifying community events, dance parties, theatre and music, culminating with the globally renowned Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade on Saturday 2 March 2024.

Tickets to Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras events go on sale to the general public at 10am AEDT Monday 20 November.

Mardi Gras Members will get early access to tickets from 10am Wednesday 15 November.

“Our Future… is not just a theme but a call to action, a bold invitation to define and shape our path forward as a community. It acknowledges our past, but encourages us to envision what comes next. It’s a statement that is open to interpretation and engagement, irrespective of geographical location or physical attendance. It’s our collective journey and story to share.”

Gil Beckwith, CEO of Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras.
