Fair Day is traditionally one of the first events of Mardi Gras each year, but in 2023 it's going one better: it's also the first major event of Sydney WorldPride. Get ready for a family-friendly, pup-friendly, eco-glitter-friendly day in Victoria Park that's inclusive, relaxed and free.

This year's Fair Day will feature a fancy dress competition for dogs, over 300 market stalls, pop-up bars, a main stage with leading queer performers in Australian music, plus the chance to shine brightly with your nearest and dearest chosen family.

Highlights of the performance lineup include Eurovision champion Conchita Wurst, a Sissy Ball vogue showcase, The Buoys, Nana Miss Koori, Carla Wehbe, Jamaica Moana and Latifa Tee.

Elsewhere around Fair Day, the First Nations Circle will celebrate LGBTQIA+SB Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, a live recording of the ABC's The Party Room will be talking politics, The Absolut Dancefloor will be serving up party-starting dance tunes, and the likes of Archie Rose, Little Creatures and Squealing Pig will be supplying refreshing drinks.
