Self-isolation and social distancing doesn’t mean we can’t have parties. Lots of people are holding online parties using zoom, skype and other online platforms. And you can still dress up!

Mardi Gras Party Ideas

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.
