Sydney Gay And Lesbian Mardi Gras have temporarily paused ticket sales as new COVID clusters emerge in recent weeks.

“As government recommendations continue to evolve, we are temporarily pausing new ticket sales to the 2021 Mardi Gras Parade at the Sydney Cricket Ground,” the organisation said via a statement on its website.  

The parade, scheduled to go ahead at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) under with a new COVID-safe format, has been thrown into doubt in recent weeks. Over Christmas, part of Greater Sydney has been in lockdown, new hotspots are emerging, and the SCG has been slashed to 25 percent capacity in recent days.

In December, Sydney Gay And Lesbian Mardi Gras announced it would not go ahead with Fair Day in 2021, instead holding the event in 2022. Traditionally, the day in the park is held the weekend before the Parade.
