FAIR Day is one of the biggest and best-loved community events, and as per usual it will officially launch the annual Mardi Gras festival season.

Join over 80,000 people in Sydney’s picturesque Victoria Park for a free, fun-filled celebration of LGBTI family, community and pride. [Scroll down to view map]

This year’s Fair Day is promising to be a record year, with over 250 stalls representing a diverse range of community organisations and business partners showcasing their services and products.

Alongside these stalls are theme park rides, take-away food stalls and bars, children’s activities, a pop-up theatre by Griffin Theatre, roaming talent, and plenty of picnic spaces for you and your friends to enjoy the day.

The main stage features a line-up of drag queen MCs and entertainment, including live performances by Deni Hines, Greg Gould, Natalie Conway and Bielfield.

Meanwhile, over at the top the hill with views over Sydney’s skyline, the Mardi Gras Lounge will bring some of Sydney’s best DJs — Victoria Anthony, Dom DeSoussa, Brett Austin and Tom Pritchard — for a camp party in the park.

And of course, don’t forget to bring your furry friends to strut their stuff at the famous DoggyWood dog show.

Fair Day is also a perfect hybrid of picnic and party, so be sure to pack a rug with your loved ones, as this is the best way to make the most of it.

Donations help keep Fair Day free for everyone, so spare some loose change upon entry.
