Where to Eat and Drink at the 2023 Mardi Gras Parade
The Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras parade will make a triumphant return to its spiritual home of Oxford Street on Saturday, February 25. It's right on time for Sydney World Pride, a 17-day celebration of queer Australian people and culture. The day also marks the 45th anniversary of the first parade.
This year’s World Pride theme is "Gather, Dream, Amplify", which you’ll find threaded through 200 floats and the 12,500 marchers expected along the stretch from Hyde Park to Moore Park, with free and premium viewing areas along the way.
But what’s the plan before and after the main event? Whether you’re after a bottomless drag brunch beforehand, a late-night boogie afterwards or a laid-back recovery session on Sunday, this list has you covered.
