Oxtavaganza 2019 - Saturday Feb 23rd
Only on Oxford St can you celebrate with bands, burlesque and (naked) barbers!
Oxford Street’s annual celebration ‘OXTRAVAGANZA’ is back for it’s 3rd year, with a very special ambassador: Sheldon Riley from The Voice.
OXTRAVAGANZA is an opportunity for your business to showcase its wares, personality and talent on the same day as your neighbours on the middle weekend of Mardi Gras.
Funded by a City of Sydney Festival Grant, and as an official Community Partner of the 2019 Sydney Gay & Lesbain Mardi Gras, the Darlinghurst Business Partnership will be doing a ton of promo for the day, including a printed programme that will go out to local residents and shops in the preceeding weeks.
Register Your Involvement Now
This is not your ordinary festival, it is a grass-roots activation where local traders and venues organise events, specials, shows and treats for visitors to the area. It’s as big as you make it and we are here to help. Retailers will have approval to make use of the footpath outside their shops.
It could be as simple as having a sale, setting up a chocolate wheel with a prize for any customer who makes a purchase; have a live musician, have burlesque dancers in your shop window. Brainstorm with your suppliers, customers, friends and come up with an idea to enliven your space.
Whether you have an idea or not, we want you to be involved. Fill in the form below and if you need some help with ideas or with contacts, just tick the button and we’ll be in touch.
Proceeds raised on the day go to Twenty10 +GLCS, a charity for at-risk LGBTQI youth.
Full Programme out February 1st. Oxtravaganza is an official Mardi Gras Festival Partner.
