The Mardi Gras Parade Viewing Events Grants is a new initiative by Mardi Gras and Facebook Australia and part of their annual partnership, aimed at supporting hospitality venues, small businesses, and LGBTQI+ artists and performers impacted by pandemic over the last 12 months. The $100,000 grant fund has been awarded to venues to support them in hosting viewing events and employ LGBTQI+ artists.
Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras CEO Albert Kruger said, “The Parade Viewing Party Grants have not only provided much-needed support to the hospitality and arts sectors, but they are also helping create safe spaces for our community to gather and be a part of our Parade audience."
“These venues will truly capture the spirit of Mardi Gras with each programming incredible entertainment. If you’re looking for a fun space to celebrate in style, you really can’t go past these venues,” said Kruger.
