7th - 26th of January, Sydney Festival
Spending time at the Sydney Festival could take up most of your free time in January. With more than 400 performances and 100 events, this event celebrates culture, ideas, style and summer itself. Many of the events are free and you can get a full schedule on the website from the middle of October. There will also be some world famous talents up on the stages, so buy your tickets early if you’re interested in any of these amazing shows.

February and March, Mardi Gras
The world can be a scary place sometimes, which is why celebrating pride and diversity is more important than ever before. Show your support for the LGBTQI community and have some fun at the Mardi Gras fair day or the raising of the rainbow flag in February. Marvel at the spectacle of the main parade in March. Or fill up your calendar and be there for all of them.
So there really is no excuse. This Summer, get out and enjoy everything Sydney has to offer. And make this season one to remember.
