New Year

NEON GARDEN NYE 2017 Poster A4 Web

The Tropical Fruits New Year's Festival is a four day LGBTIQ celebration held in the city of Lismore in sub-tropical Northern NSW, an area rather appropriately known as the Rainbow Region.

The New Year's Eve Party and the Recovery Party are held at the retro-chic Lismore Showgrounds, lovingly transformed by hundreds of volunteers into a sumptous smorgasbord of our unique culture.

Take in the whole experience with our on-site camping facility, studded with themed areas to suit all your camp needs.

Show your pride at the Street Parade, opening the Festival with a flamboyant parade through Lismore CBD.

Partygoers on New Year's Eve can sashay between three massive dance spaces featuring top Australian and International DJs.

Get a culture shot at our Art Exhibition and Cabaret. Our region has the highest concentration of artists, musicians and other creative types living in rural NSW, many of them part of the LGBTIQ community, and we're showcasing them for you!

Rejuvenate on New Year's Day at our sensational, slippery, sexy Pool Party - held in the post-deco ambience of the Lismore Memorial Baths booked exclusively for Tropical Fruits. Swim, shower, sun yourself and get dancing by the pool with some delectable LGBTIQ folk.

Then back at the Showgrounds, as the sun starts to set, enjoy a FREE BBQ as we kick back and get set to groove the night away at Recovery.

Tickets for the NYE Festival and volunteer registrations go live each year on September 1.
