Presented by Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras
Celebrating our LGBTQIA+ communities
Friday, 16th February to Sunday, 3rd March
Australia's largest celebration of its diverse LGBTQIA+ communities, the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras brings a burst of colour and creativity to the city each year. Running from 16 February to 3 March, the festivities in 2024 include an exciting blockbuster program of over 100 community events, dance parties, theatre and music, taking place over 17 glorious summer days.
In 2024, the Mardi Gras Parade returns to Oxford Street, Flinders Street and Anzac Parade on 2 March, centred around the theme 'Our Future'. As always, the parade will be led by the beloved Dykes on Bikes, First Nations and 78er floats.
The parade is the biggest event of the festival, featuring 12,500 marchers and over 200 floats – in 2023, over 250,000 spectators were captivated as more than 12,000 participants took to the streets in a spectacular display of colour, creativity and pride. There are free viewing areas all along Oxford Street, as well as premium viewing spaces and accessible viewing ticketed areas to view the spectacle from Hyde Park to Moore Park.
