This weekend’s best Mardi Gras day party is a Sunday roast in Camperdown

While Sydney is no doubt going to be jam-packed with fun things to do during Mardi Gras weekend, we’ve gone and picked out just one event that we think will be essential come next weekend. That’s the Absolut and Heaps Gay party in Camperdown on Sunday 6th March, fashioned as a Sunday roast but moving away from tradition with an afternoon celebration of queer food, drink, comedy, and theatre from USYD’s The Refectory.

For one day only, Heaps Gay and Absolut will transform The Refectory in Camperdown into the most fabulous Sunday roast around. Centred around a four-course banquet curated by Anna Polyviou, the event will be a colourful culinary celebration, paired with cocktails by Absolut and an atmosphere built by some of the country’s most talented queer artists.

Already on the line-up is Sydney-based Mangari First Nations artist Tyra Bankstown and the Black Moles, and QTBIPOC collective House of Silky. Also set to perform on the day is the legendary Paul Mac and Johnny Seymour of Stereogamous, and Timothy & The Heart Strings.

Tickets to The Roast are being kept very limited and are only available via Humantix. All ticket sales go to supporting ACON, Australia’s largest HIV and sexuality and gender diverse health organisation.
