river pride parade

Sat 9 Nov

In a celebration of our LGBTQIA+ communities and allies, we invite everyone to join the inaugural River Pride Parade. Proudly led by Queen of the River Courtney Act. Boats of all shapes and sizes are welcome. 

Whether you register your boat, join an existing one, or simply choose to enjoy the spectacle from the riverbank, this family-friendly event is Brisbane’s own Mardi Gras or Mardi Raft, as we like to say. The flotilla of vessels will make the journey from William Jolly Bridge to Brisbane Powerhouse on Saturday 9 November 2024.


Feeling nauti?
Register your own mardi-raft or submit your interest to cruise on someone else’s (pun 100% intended). 

Registrations close midnight Sunday 30 June 2024.
