The 2021 Sydney Gay And Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade will now be able to operate at full capacity thanks to a new ease in restrictions in New South Wales.

The parade will be able to welcome up to 46,000 spectators, which is double what was previously permitted.

Thanks to this updated capacity, Mardi Gras has expanded their free ticket offering for those community members feeling the financial impacts of COVID-19. They'll now be giving away 2,000 free tickets, randomly allocated via a ballot system.

"We understand that 2020 has been a challenging year for many members of our LGBTQIA+ communities, and in response to those who are experiencing financial hardship as a result, we announced Mardi Gras would hold a free ticketing ballot for the Parade back in November," Mardi Gras CEO Albert Kruger says.

"We are extremely pleased that the easing of restrictions means we can extend our offering to 2,000 free tickets in total, ensuring that as many people as possible can celebrate their pride with us in person on the night."

Additional seating will go on sale 9 December at 2pm AEDT.

The 2021 Sydney Gay And Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade will take place on 6 March.
