Mardi Gras Party Ideas

Event Themes

Mardi Gras runs from mid-February to the first week in March in Sydney – but if you can't be there for some or any of it, you can still join in the spirit for Mardi Gras and have your own Mardi Gras-themed parties.

Mardi Gras Party Costumes and Decorations

Let's face it – while you need some decorations for the venue, the main thing you decorate for Mardi Gras is yourself. It's a chance to be adventurous in every way.

Mardi Activities

  • You need lots of music – make sure you have open space for dancing – and karaoke!
  • Decorate a platform or stage like a mardi gras float.
  • Have a party on parade night and have the real parade on a big screen.
  • Prizes for best costumes, eg
    • best male costume (by a man, by a woman)
    • best female costume (by a woman, by a man)
    • best drag costumes
    • best group costumes
  • Food and drink should be cocktail-style – nobody is going to sit down with a knife and fork.
