Kick off your 2020 Sydney Mardi Gras with Fair Day!
Fair Day is a landmark of the Mardi Gras Festival, where our LGBTQI communities shine brightly together.

Fair Day is an all-day rainbow adventure for the whole family. Enjoy the summer sunshine with a picnic, shop the community stalls for your Festival outfit or join the fun and games in the Sports Village - there's something on offer for everyone, including your precious fur babies who can strut their stuff at the world-famous Doggywood competition.

Our Main Stage has become a festival hotspot in recent years, proudly showcasing up-and-coming and leading queer performers who are redefining the Australian music and arts landscape to ensure LGBTQI voices and stories are heard. 2020 will see performances by emerging and established musicians, plus beloved community DJs taking over the decks at sun-down, turning Victoria Park into a giant dance party.


Fair Day is a colourful and eclectic marketplace where Stallholders can connect with the LGBTQI community. It’s a fantastic place for community groups to reach and recruit new members, for talented designers to sell wares, for entrepreneurs to trial a new product, for businesses to cultivate new customers, and for farmers and food producers to sell produce and gastronomic delights.

Partnerships at Mardi Gras showcase the wonderful contribution that businesses make to show support to the LGBTQI community. SGLMG relies on the support of our generous corporate partners and it is important that we identify as early as possible any potential issues or conflicts between our sponsors and our Stallholders.

If you are a commercial entity, please provide details of your business. If you have any sponsorship or advertising arrangements, please indicate this so that we can work with you to resolve any issues well in advance.

Stallholders should note that SGLMG's arrangements with its partners will take precedence over individual Stallholders’ product or service displays at Fair Day, and we will request modification to the appearance of your stall or the range of products you are selling on the day if they conflict with our contractual arrangement. Where Stallholders commercial operations pose a direct conflict with SGLMG partnership arrangements, you may be advised by SGLMG that your participation in Fair Day may not be possible.
