Destination Garden Route - Knysna Pink Loerie Mardi Gras & Arts Festival

Pink Loerie Mardi Gras & Arts Festival – CANCELLED

Updated March 15, 2020: CANCELLED due to the Corona virus

For the past eighteen years at the end of April and the first week of May, Knysna has also become home to one of the freshest and most exciting LGBTI celebrations around the world – the Pink Loerie Mardi Gras and Arts Festival. Initially started by local businessmen to entice tourists to the town during the slow month of May and reinvigorate the local economy, the Pink Loerie Mardi Gras was also an event that that would not only incorporate the region’s gay identity but celebrate the cultural contribution the gay community made to the region and overcome a history of suppression. And with an ever increasingly visible gay population, Knysna’s Pink Loerie has quietly become one of the most written about and must-see annual celebrations within the global gay community.

The event is finished.
