With our community's safety foremost in mind,  the Northside Bizarre Team has taken the difficult decision to postpone our planned event from 6th February to October/November 2021.  While we will miss strutting our leather together on the 6th, we are planning to keep working to prepare for the event later this year, kicking off with a Leather & Treasure Donation Drive at The Laird on Saturday, 16 January 2021.  To find out more about the Donation Drive and other lead up events to Northside Bizarre 2021 click here.

Northside Bizarre is a kaleidoscope of queerness that just keeps getting bigger and bigger each year! Soon to celebrate our 10th anniversary, Northside Bizarre is an annual fundraiser supporting Thorne Harbour Health’s David Williams Fund (offering support to people living with HIV) and community broadcaster JOY 94.9.

Hosted by The Laird Hotel, Northside Bizarre has expanded over the years to take over the neighbouring Collingwood Masonic Hall and the section of Henry Street that runs between the two iconic venues. The event has continued to evolve and now reflects everything that is inclusive, kink and community. Pick up a bargain from our Leather & Treasure donated goods, or browse the stalls on Market Alley. Make a bid for a unique one-of-a-kind item at our famous auction. Watch a kink show front and centre on The Laird Stage. Or why not sample a cooking masterpiece from the contestants in our Master Baker competition. Northside Bizarre has it all on offer and everyone is welcome!

Attracting thousands of people every year, Northside Bizarre has now become a highlight of the annual queer calendar in Melbourne. We are working hard to bring you the biggest and best 10th anniversary event ever staged!

This event is not possible without community and business support. Find out how to get involved here.
