Cairns Pride Festival will return this month with the long-running event officially launching later this week in Far North Queensland.
This year’s Cairns Pride Festival runs from October 14 to 23 and features social gatherings and community events across the region.
On October 23, Cairns Pride Festival’s biggest event, the Fair Day, will offer a day of entertainment, art, culture, food and more for family and friends.
“Fair Day is a beautiful day where we come together to celebrate our LGBTIQ+ communities in the far north,” organisers said.
“We’re so excited to bring Fair Day to Fogarty Park for you, right next to the beautiful Cairns Esplanade. Bask in the big green open spaces that many of our communities have enjoyed over the years.
“Enjoy a full day of activities, including a welcome, a bake-off competition, art for all ages, special guests, entertainment and more.
“Bake up a storm and show off your best sweets skills at our Fair Day Bake Off competition.
“Browse a range of merchandise, community, services, chill out space and health and wellbeing stalls.”
