About this event

These tickets are for Gay Dads

Mardi Gras is on March 5 this year

Due to COVID restrictions, the format will be the same as last year.  Participant groups will be marching around the Sydney Cricket Ground and then have their moment to shine as they walk down the middle of the stadium.

Rainbow Families, Gay Dads and Rainbow Families Play Groups have been lucky enough to each receive a 40-participant group this year.

Just like last year these 3 groups will be marching consecutively, but not together.  Each group will have the same shirts and accessories so we will still look like one big cohesive community. 

This year the wonderful people at East Village Shopping Centre are sponsoring out float and helping to make Mardi Gras special for our families. We will be running a number of workshops in the lead up to Mardi Gras where people marching will need to come to decorate their shirt and accessories as well as decorating Joyce Maynge’s dress for our float!!! Details on these workshops will be finalised in January. Thanks to the financial support of East Village tickets are only $40 per person this year. 

Make sure you read the important information below before purchasing a ticket.

Important Information

Due to COVID restriction, you will not be able to sell tickets once you have bought them.  Mardi Gras requires full registration details of participants a month before Mardi Gras is held. The name you register under has to be your LEGAL NAME.

During the parade, participants must comply to COVID restriction, including social distancing and mask wearing and all people above the age of 12 must be vaccinated.  If you do not comply, you may be asked to leave the parade.

If Mardi Gras is cancelled, we will not be able to refund the entire ticket price.  Putting on a Mardi Gras float is expensive, and is entirely funded by ticket sales.  We will attempt to refund what we can, but it is not guaranteed.  Please keep this in mind when deciding whether to buy tickets.

Please buy tickets in the CORRECT float.  If you are a gay dad, buy tickets for the gay dads float, etc.  If your children are not at school yet please but tickets in the Play Group float.

Tshirts will be ordered after ticket sales, and there will be no opportunity to change them.  It is important that you nominate the correct size when purchasing your ticket
