Brisbane Pride Fair Day — the biggest day on the Queensland LGBTIQ+ calendar — rolls around on Saturday 2 October. Brisbane Pride is now accepting expressions of interest from potential Stallholders who would like to participate in the day.
In 2020, Brisbane Pride Fair Day became the first Australian LGBTIQ+ to go ahead following the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on public gatherings. Around 4,000 revellers attended the event in New Farm Park under a COVID-safe plan approved by Queensland Health.
Although traditionally held in September, in 2020 the pandemic saw Fair Day pushed back to November. In 2021, the event will occur on 2 October, capping off the month-long program of Pride Festival events in September.
This year, Brisbane Pride again plan a COVID-safe event with strategies to allow a safe event.
Bec Johnson, President of Brisbane Pride said the Festival Committee looked forward to a happy and safe Pride.
“While many communities around the world still struggle to gather safely, thanks to the collective good work of all Queenslanders, we are able to arrange public events in Brisbane.
“The Brisbane Pride Festival Committee commits to providing a COVID-safe environment for our communities to physically connect.”
Stallholder Applications – Pride Fair Day 2021
“Stallholders play an important role in our annual Fair Day. Our attendees look forward to exploring the range of stalls from community groups, businesses and vendors available each year.
“Unfortunately, due to space limitations, we can never fit in every applicant who wishes to host a stall on Fair Day. Therefore, we encourage those interested to send in an expression of interest early to increase their chance of acceptance. Details of costs will be released soon and all stallholders will be required to adhere to our Queensland Health-approved COVID-safe plan.”
