Mardi Gras isn’t just when gay goes from good to great. This year’s theme, ‘creating equality’, celebrates a 39 year old history of fostering rights and fighting discrimination against sexuality, sex, gender, identity, race, beliefs, age and abilities.
Arrivals: Crowds start gathering for pre-parade merry making from 5:00 pm
Parade time: 7:15pm
Our Mardi Bar picks: Oxford Hotel or Colombian hotel
The after party: Horden Pavilion featuring some of Sydney’s best local DJ’s and hot selection of international talent that will be raging until the sun comes up. If you’re out of luck and tickets, head over to the great events at the Shift , the Stonewall or pretty much any other place along the street.
The after-after party: If you’re still pumping on Sunday, you have your pick of Apollo, The Daywash, Laneway or Papa party to close the weekend spectacularly.
Happy Mardi Gras!
