Sydney’s most vibrant free queer community event for the summer, Fair Day, returns to picturesque Victoria Park on Sunday 16 February for a day of fun and frivolity.
Over 80,000 revellers are expected to make their way to the big gig, to soak in the sunshine, enjoy entertainment, shop at community stalls (plenty of garb to put together the perfect Mardi Gras outfit) or join the fun and games in the Sports Village. And of course there’s the world-famous Doggywood best-in-show competition.
“Fair Day is a cornerstone of the Mardi Gras season and brings LGBTQI people of all walks of life together for a day of celebration alongside our family and friends.”
Performers on the day include queer hip-hop artists Jess B, Jamarz On Marz, Jamaica Moana and Hoodzy, electric live sets from Ngaiire, Bec Sandridge, Architects Of Sound and Huntly, show stopping drag performances plus sets from a bunch of brill DJs, all hosted by Faustina Agolley, aka Fuzzy from the telly.
“Fair Day is a cornerstone of the Mardi Gras season and brings LGBTQI people of all walks of life together for a day of celebration alongside our family and friends,” said Mardi Gras CEO Albert Kruger. “It is an opportunity for us to remember our history and toast to the resoundingly positive spirit of our community.”
Victoria Park Pool nearby will be open on the big day, so be sure to pack your swimmers if you want to take a dip. But don’t get your feathers and leathers wet!
Fair Day 2020 takes place Sunday 16 February from 10am-9pm at Victoria Park, corner Parramatta Rd and City Rd, Broadway. Entry is free. For more information, visit www.mardigras.org.au.
