Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade

Date: 2022 Dates To Be Advised

Watch out for the Dayenu Float in this year’s Mardi Gras Parade!

If you would like to be a part of our float, registrations are now open to march with Dayenu in the Mardi Gras Parade. We only have about 35 places in the float for Dayenu people, so RSVP your place now so you don't miss out!

Theme: "Jewish, Queer, and Fabulous"

The overall theme for Mardi Gras this year is "What Matters", so we are responding to it by showing what matters to the Jewish LGBTQIA+ community. The key message that we want to convey through our float is that it’s okay (or Fabulous!) to be Jewish and Queer. We have been marching in the Mardi Gras Parade since 2000, and this year will be the 20th Anniversary for Dayenu, so we want to continue this legacy.
