Mardi Gras Parade

It’s time to get your sparkle on. Mardi Gras is almost here!

Join us as we celebrate our wonderful families in the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras 2020 Parade.

Mardi Gras is our opportunity to celebrate our rainbow families and push for recognition. Join our community as we proudly march down Oxford Street.


Tickets to march with Rainbow Families and for the family viewing area have sold out. 


All those who buy tickets will be provided, in the coming weeks, with a Rainbow Families Mardi Gras survival pack. This will outline start and finish times, directions, t-shirt, what to wear and how to accessorise. 

In the meantime, here is what you need to know:

  • Tickets are limited and will sell fast. Tickets are $70 per person. 

  • Tickets will be available for financial members of Rainbow Families. Membership is only $22. Sign up as a member here.
  • There are 10 discount tickets for low income families. They will be $10 per person. These have been drawn randomly and are sold out.

  • When you purchase your tickets you will need to choose T-Shirt sizes.

THERE WILL BE NO EXCHANGES OF T-SHIRTS. Choose wisely and if in doubt go a size bigger.

  • Tickets are limited to 5 per person.

  • Photography on the night - Mardi Gras is a huge event for our community. We will have 2 photographers marching with our group, if you have any concerns with being photographed please let Bern know on the day however it is a televised event and media will be everywhere so it can't really be controlled. 

More info:
The cost of the ticket will cover part of the cost of participating in the parade - hire of entertainment, creation of the float, music, lights, banners as well as your T-Shirt and accessories.

In the coming weeks, all those who buy tickets will be provided with a Rainbow Families Mardi Gras survival pack. This document will outline start and finish times, directions, T-Shirt and props distribution, what to wear and how to accessorise.

We have a limited number of tickets, and unfortunately that means some people will miss out. 

Feedback from previous years has been the ladies shirt sizes are small, however there are lots of larger sizes in the men's range. 

Tickets will be available in January 2020
