Tropical Fruits invites you to SHINE with us this New Year’s Eve. This is the perfect year to come for the first time, or to come again, as we celebrate 30 years as a social club.

On December 29th we kick off the festival and show our pride with a Street Parade through the Lismore CBD ending at Lismore City Hall with our Opening Soiree. This year Tropical Fruits is proud to welcome our sisters from Dykes on Bikes® Sydney who are also celebrating their 30th anniversary and will be roaring up the Pacific Highway to join us for the first time at the Tropical Fruits Street Parade.

Festival events include three glistening main parties: the New Year’s Eve party, New Year’s Day Pool Party and New Year’s Day Recovery Party. NYE will include four dazzling feature dance floors where we will hear from headliners DJ’s Grind & Toy Armada (direct from the USA) as well as the best DJs Australia has to offer including Sveta, Sandi Hotrod, Les Smith, Ruby in the Dome and many, many more. See our website for a full list of more than 20 DJs across all festival events. The main NYE Party also will feature radiant performances from the Cabaret and glimmering works of LGBTIQ artists on exhibition.

Remember to book accommodation early or better yet take in the whole experience with our on-site camping facilities, camping must be pre-booked and spaces are limited. Across the festival week come SHINE with us as we remember we are all made of stardust as we stand beside each other and stare fearlessly into a brand-new year.


DJ Grind & Toy Armada (USA), Sandi Hotrod, Feisty, Amanda Louise, Ruby, Les Smith, Chip, LADY K, Dom Da Sousa, Sveta, Neroli, Mike Kelly, Somerville & Wilson, DJ Magnus, Jay Bee, Stephen Simpson, DJ Marty, Elschorcho, Amozon and Platypuss & Sarahtone’n.

Tropical Fruits prides itself on being a Fun, Safe & Inclusive social club and invites all it's members and guests to come and enjoy our events in a safe and respectful environment that embraces all the diversity of our community.
