Sydney Mardi Gras 2021 Parade!
The 43rd Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade – on Saturday 6 March 2021 we’re transforming the Sydney Cricket Ground into a stunning and sparkling showcase of LGBTQI+ culture and community.
Feel the energy of the crowd and gaze in wonderment at what we can create together. Join the stadium audience of 23,000 families, friends and allies, where you’ll witness a colourful cavalcade starring 5,000 paraders from over 100 LGBTQI+ community groups. The 2021 Parade will take inspiration from its past and move away from large floats, focusing instead on the outlandish pageantry of vibrant costumes, puppetry and props that made it such a phenomenon in its earliest years.
