2021 Mardi Gras Parade can now welcome an additional 23,000 spectators
Following the easing of COVID restrictions in NSW last week, and with Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) now able to operate at full capacity, Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras has announced that the 2021 Mardi Gras Parade will welcome up to 46,000 total spectators to the live event on 6th March, double what was previously permitted.
With the increased venue capacity, Mardi Gras has expanded their free ticket offering for community members who are feeling the financial impact of COVID-19, now giving away 2,000 free tickets to ensure the Parade is as accessible as possible to all. Tickets will be randomly allocated via a ballot system where 1,000 people will be selected to receive a double pass to experience the Parade live at the SCG.
Mardi Gras Chief Executive Albert Kruger advised “we understand that 2020 has been a challenging year for many members of our LGBTQI+ communities, and in response to those who are experiencing financial hardship as a result, we announced Mardi Gras would hold a free ticketing ballot for the Parade back in November.
“We are extremely pleased that the easing of restrictions means we can extend our offering to 2,000 free tickets in total, ensuring that as many people as possible can celebrate their Pride with us in person on the night.”
Applications for the COVID-19 Hardship ballot are now open. Click here to apply, winners will be drawn on 3rd January, 2021 and notified the following week.
Additional Parade seating will go on sale this Wednesday 9th December at 2pm AEDT. For more information go to www.mardigras.org.au/
