Big Gay Out 2018

Big Gay Out 2018


The Big Gay Out is New Zealand’s biggest celebration of diverse communities. Everyone is welcome to come along and enjoy the entertainment and activities at this fun, family-friendly event.

The Big Gay Out 2018 is on Sunday the 11th of February, from 12-7pm at Coyle Park, Pt Chevalier. For the past few years we have consistently had 10,000 attendees relaxing in the sun, enjoying the entertainment, and, of course, exploring and partaking in the delights of our Marketplace! 

Places in the busy marketplace are extremely popular. We are now accepting stallholder applications and will be determining the final range of stalls. Those who are successful will be contacted closer to the event and sent a Stallholder Agreement to complete and sign.
