Tropical Mardi Gras, Cairns runs on the generosity of our sponsors, a small amount of local and state government funding, and a huge amount of goodwill and community spirit from our glorious volunteers. Our organisation is called Cairns Tropical Pride, and our core working values are kindness, acceptance and respect. Whether you have advanced skills in marketing and event management, or whether you are brand new to the festival zone, every person and every minute you can give is a valuable contribution. Everyone is welcome!
The Tropical Mardi Gras team falls into one of three categories – Marketing, Events, and Gorgeous Assistants. Together, we make Team MEGA. Team meetings are held every second Tuesday evening at Quac, 290 Draper St, and are published on our facebook and website. During non-meeting weeks we get together just for fun – a great chance to meet the team and toss ideas around. All ages, all abilities, all genders and persuasions are welcome – if you are on #teamequal, then you are part of the Cairns Tropical Pride family!
