It is a tough time to be planning an event these days and without a crystal ball we have to make decisions the best we can. With the unfolding state of lockdown restrictions due to Covid-19 and our community's safety foremost in mind, we will not be going ahead with Northside Bizarre this year. We are working really hard behind the scenes to bring you some positive news about when and how Northside Bizarre will take place (we have some really exciting ideas!). Stay tuned for more details to come later in the year. Thank you for your patience and understanding and we hope everyone is looking after themselves during these tough times.

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.
