Moreton Bay PrideFest, the region’s biggest LGBTIQA+ celebration is on Saturday, June 8, at Pine Rivers Park, Strathpine.

Tickets are still available for the event, which is part of a broader vision to make the City of Moreton Bay a happier, healthier, safer, and more culturally rich and diverse place for the LGBTIQA+ community.

The inaugural event in 2023 attracted more than 3500 visitors and locals for an afternoon of celebration, pride, inclusivity, and diversity.

ARIA award-winning singer, Logie-nominated actress and Dancing With The Stars competitor, Samantha Jade will headline the event.

Jade, a former X Factor Australia winner will be joined on stage by Australian drag artist, entertainer and producer, Art Simone and international drag performer, Kween Kong, who have both appeared in RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under.

DJ Harry K and The Fluffy AllStars will also entertain the crowd at the event hosted by Paul Wheeler.
