Sydney World Pride 2023 was a rainbow-coloured extravaganza, and we at Rude Rainbow were thrilled to be a part of it! As a small business that sells party accessories, this was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to let our flags fly and showcase our products to the world.
One of the highlights of our experience was having a stall at Fair Day. We had no idea what we were in for when we showed up, but it was like a magical queer Disneyland! The turnout was absolutely insane, with over 80,000 people in attendance. It was so hot on the day that we ended up selling out of fans by 3pm! We were amazed to see a sea of people partying with the fans we had created, and it was a truly unforgettable experience. We felt like the queens of the festival!
In between attending various pride events, we were working our butts off packing orders each and every night. We were like Santa's elves on redbull, making sure that our customers received their orders as quickly as possible so they could use them at the events. Seeing our customers with our items out and about at parties made us feel like proud parents!
We were also lucky enough to be one of 10 small businesses selected by American Express for a pop-up stall on Oxford St during the final weekend of World Pride. It was like hitting the jackpot! We had a prime spot, and we met so many amazing people. We were able to share our products with even more customers with this incredible opportunity.
All in all, Sydney World Pride was a wild and crazy ride, and we are so happy we were able to bring some fun and flair to the event. We can't wait for the next Pride event and are already planning our outfits and products. Thank you to all the beautiful people who made World Pride 2023 a dream come true!
