Events & festivals

Bristol has some excellent LGBT+ events throughout the year including one of the best Pride events in the UK every July.

We are a festival capital and the LGBT+ offer is not to be overlooked, offering a unique fusion culture. All of the LGBT festivals are multi-venue from the Bristol Bear Fiesta, now over a decade old, to our newest offering of UK Leather Pride and Trans Pride South West. All are welcome and everyone is free to be themselves.

The events scene in Bristol is intimate, fun and cutting-edge with top acts from all over the world, including DJ’s from Berghain Club, Drag acts from Ru Pauls Drag race as well as local acts who style embodies Bristol's fusion culture.
