Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras 2018
Celebrating 40 Years of Evolution
16 February 2018 – 4 March 2018.
2018 marks the historic 40 th anniversary of the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, returning with an enthralling program commemorating its history of passion, pride and protest.  In this special anniversary year, the 2018 Festival focuses on the theme ’40 Years of Evolution’ – 40 years from the original 1978 street Festival turned protest, the program has been carefully curated to reflect and celebrate four decades of love, activism and diversity.  For 17 days, Sydney will transform into a dazzling rainbow wonderland, with queer art, music, theatre, stimulating talks and wild parties at the forefront of the season. Mardi Gras reaches its zenith on March 3 with the world-renowned Parade bringing Sydney to a halt, as  12,000 glitter-adorned participants march in support of equality and self-expression.
