Sydney World Pride
Ticketing & Event Marketing Strategy
In 2023, Sydney Mardi Gras (SMG) and Sydney WorldPride (SWP) will unite to present a truly global LGBTQI+ pride festival – the very first in the Southern Hemisphere.
WorldPride is a global Pride celebration that happens every few years in a different city and is licensed by international organisation InterPride which has representatives from nearly every Pride organisation around the world. Sydney was chosen by InterPride members to be the host of World Pride in 2023.
Sydney World Pride events will take place from 17 February 2023 until 5 March 2023, incorporating Sydney Mardi Gras events with official Sydney WorldPride 8 signature events including the Opening Ceremony and closing ceremony and third party satellite events under the umbrella of Sydney WorldPride.
The theme for the festival, Gather, Dream, Amplify, which acknowledges the traditional custodians of Australia and represents the event’s commitment to equality and inclusion.
