Update: 14 February 2024
On Monday 12 February, following advice from the Environment Protection Authority (EPA) about possible asbestos contamination in mulch, test results found bonded asbestos at Victoria Park.
The City and Sydney Mardi Gras have been working together closely over the past two days to coordinate clean-up of the affected areas while bumping in Fair Day infrastructure in time to hold the event.
Following a more detailed investigation into the safety concerns at Victoria Park, it has become clear to the City and Sydney Mardi Gras that an event of the scale of Fair Day is unable to proceed this Sunday.
The half-price entry offer at Victoria Park Pool to coincide with Fair Day still applies on Sunday 18 February.
