Rainbow on the Plains Festival
Friday 17 November 2023 to Sunday 19 November 2023
The Rainbow on the Plains is a festival of fun, support, inclusion and celebration of LGBTQIA+ community, people from culturally diverse communities and anyone who loves to celebrate inclusion.
Throughout the Festival weekend, you can expect an all-ages concert packed with kid’s entertainment, food vendors and incredible entertainment, a street parade full of colour and cheer, a Fair Day for all to sit back and enjoy or do a little shopping, an adult only after party with DJs, drag performers and much more and the annual Rainbow on the Plains Pride Cup.
This year’s Festival is themed Titanium, which is a reflection on the strength and reliance all LGBTIQA+ community members have to carry with them always. They love welcoming everyone to their Festival from far and wide, and they hope you are able to join them as well.
