Ganja Faeries

Ganja Faeries are the Vibrant Green Wave dancing behind our original custodians & the Ganja Faerie Queen, an integral part of the annual Nimbin MardiGrass Drug Law Reform Rally.

Originally inspired by the Sydney Queer Communities use of colour, performance & fun in protesting unfair laws, we are an unfunded volunteer organisation with a 29 year commitment to Cannabis Law Reform & sharing the collective wisdom of living with cannabis.

We gather every year from all over the Hempdom for about 6-8 weeks before Nimbin MardiGrass to prepare for the Parade. A key group of Faeries teach others the march routine, help with costumes, fundraise & welcome everyone who wishes to join us.

If you like, YOU too can be a Ganja Faerie, send us a message. Far away faeries can learn the routine on our Facebook page & we always do a final rehearsal 1st Friday of MardiGrass. You can contact the Ganja Faeries at
