MARDI GRAS AT THE BANK
We had an absolute BLAST during the 2021 Mardi Gras season <3
While we couldn't dance and it was very different to our usual celebrations, we were so happy to still host an enormous amount of people from our beautiful diverse community, all with smiles on their faces at each and every event.
Read below to check out what we did for Mardi Gras, and scroll down for links to photos from all the events.
Until next year!
One of our favourite times of the year is here and we've got PLENTY of events to celebrate. With a stack of our local legends, Queens, Queens and more Queens, plus extra guests, there'll be something for everyone this queer festive season.
Join us as we kick things off on Sunday 21st February and celebrate what would have been the annual Mardi Gras Fair Day! Our very own Fair Day celebrations will be kicking off at 2pm featuring a lovely host of Queens, Pure Blonde tinnie raffles, DJ Sveta & friends and way more.
Sunday 28th February we'll be hosting local plant enthusiasts Plant Daddy and their second instalment of Green Queens - a DIY plant-potting and terrarium-making masterclass hosted by everyone's favourite sisters: The Liquor Sisters.
If you're a RuPaul tragic, then you won't want to miss this! The Liquor Sisters will be hosting RuPaul Trivia at the Bank on Wednesday 3rd March at 7pm. This will SURELY book out quickly so you better get in quick.
Mardi Gras night will be a little different this year, but it doesn't mean we can't celebrate! Join us on Saturday 6th March to watch the live broadcast of the Mardi Gras parade throughout the venue.
$1 from every Pure Blonde schooner sold from 21st Feb to the 6th March will be donated to ACON.
We look forward to celebrating Mardi Gras with you all <3
