Nimbin MardiGrass

May 4 @ 10:30 am - May 6 @ 2:30 pm UTC+10

The Nimbin MardiGrass is an annual rally & celebration in the tiny village of Nimbin in northern NSW, Australia.  Beginning in 1993, MardiGrass is held to protest the drug laws, educate people on the various uses of cannabis (medicinal, industrial, recreational & spiritual) and to celebrate the culture that has grown here over the last 40 years. Our mission is to bring about change with as much fun as possible.

Sunday May 6th is the epicentre of the PROTEST. Only a massive turn out of singing, dancing, celebrating, colourful and creative people will be noted by those in authority and the media. It’s not a spectator activity. It’s standing up and (like the schoolkids in the USA) saying loud and clear: “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. It’s time for change!”

Come with your friends, use a designated driver, bring masks and costumes, drums, bells, and a joyful heart. Post the GOOD NEWS on social media. Be here for the spiritual and cultural experience, because that’s what it is. For yourselves, for your children and for your grandchildren.

It is only TOGETHER that we can build a strong caring compassionate kind and respectful world. That’s why MardiGrass would love to share that experience with you. Join MardiGrass to contribute yourself in the global marijuana march!
