No matter which letters of the LGBTQIA+ community you represent, there is something for everyone at Fair Day. Taking you from day to night, this is one of the community's most-loved events bringing over 200 retail, information and food stalls, sample giveaways and family-friendly picnic areas, with entertainment featuring Carla Wehbe, Mama de Leche, Penelope Pettigrew and The Buoys.
