Drink, dine and stay packages now on sale, with 500 tickets to the sold-out Mardi Gras Parade to give away. 

Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras may look a little different this year, but Merivale and Absolut Vodka are giving Sydneysiders the opportunity to celebrate pride and diversity in style with a fabulous line-up of drink, dine and stay packages on Saturday, 6 March. Packages on sale now from https://merivale.com/whatson/mardi-gras-packages/

If that’s not enough, the first 500 people to book will receive a free ticket to the Mardi Gras parade at the Sydney Cricket Ground, compliments of Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras’ major sponsors, Absolut Vodka.

As ongoing allies of the LGBTIQA+ community, Merivale and Absolut have also created an  ‘Absolut Banger’ cocktail. Available in selected venues* from 5 February to 7 March, $2 from each cocktail will be donated to longstanding charity partners, Bobby Goldsmith Foundation and ACON. The cocktail is a delicious mix of Absolut Lime, Lillet Blanc, passionfruit and Granny Smith apple.

Celebrating love, connection and good times together, Merivale and Absolut Vodka will soon be announcing their full program of Mardi Gras festivities. Expect DJs, drag shows and live entertainment, as well as parties (seated for now) that will get you into the festivities. Stay tuned for further details.
