Northside Bizarre 2017
The much-loved Northside Bizarre has been called 'a mini-Folsom Street party fundraiser' for two of Melbourne's biggest LGBTI community organisations - JOY 94.9 and VAC's David Williams Fund.
Donate to Leather & Treasure
Donate to The Auction
Hosted by The Laird, the event 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.
This all-day event saw over 1300+ attendees come through in 2016 and it keeps getting bigger and bigger. The event offers an opportunity outside of the typically summer festival season for the LGBTI community to come together while also supporting two of the largest organisations serving the local gender, sex, and sexually diverse community – JOY 94.9 and VAC.
Want to get involved?
Northside Bizarre relies on the generous donations of items from individuals and businesses alike. Here's two ways you can donate:
- Leather & Treasure - Got a pair of leather pants that you haven't worn in years? A pair of boots still made for walking? Donate it to Leather & Treasure where it can be sold to have a second life.
- The Auction - The Auction House is at the heart of the event with everything and anything up for grabs - wines, concert tickets, experiences, artwork, and more. This is a great way to get your small business or company involved.
