With increasing costs like road closures, licenses, policing, security and cleansing, and a reduction in funding across the board in the arts, we decided that we could not put on the usual Mardi Gras spectacular this year.

We know you’re disappointed!

Now’s your chance to help shape how Festival Sunday might look and also donate now to help us fund a spectacular in 2017.

We’re asking for suggested donations of £5 (or more if you’re passionate about the festival) and if you donate £20 or more you’ll be added to our ‘wall of supporters’ and automatically be entered into a prize draw to win 4 x meal for two, £50 M&S voucher, £50 Waterstone voucher.

Let’s put this into perspective – if everyone who visits the website, follows us on Twitter, likes us on Facebook or is on our email list, we can reach an estimated 110,000 people across Glasgow!

Please, help us bring back the best day out in Glasgow, which everyone loves. It’s your festival and we need your support.

Thanks in advance!

Parade suggestion

We'd love to hear your ideas for suggestions for the parade! Let us know what you would like to see, what you think would make next years parade the best one yet, and if we like the sound of it we will be in touch.
