Bristol Pride is back for 2022 for 2 weeks in June & July and a return to The Downs
During the two weeks, the festival’s exciting programme of events will take place in venues across Bristol bringing the city alive with Pride as the charity also helps to support one of the hardest hit sectors, especially venues that are serving the LGBT+ community.
Pride Day will take place on Saturday 9th July and after a two year absence, will return to The Downs. The event will feature multiple stages and will attract some of the biggest names in live music and entertainment, plus showcasing new and emerging talent including performances from local artists and community groups. Pride Day will also see a welcome return of the Pride Big Top, Youth Area, Family Zone and Community Area.
After a 2 year break caused by the pandemic, Bristol Pride have announced the annual parade march will return this year. Taking place on Pride Day, ahead of the festival on The Downs, The Parade will gather in Castle Park before making its way through the city centre and onwards to the harbourside.

Organisers are encouraging attendees to purchase a Supporter Wristband. Priced from £7, they enable future events like Pride Day to remain accessible to those, who for socio-economic reasons, may not be able to afford to attend an exclusively ticketed event. Wristbands are on sale now and include various offers including free bus travel on Pride Day, within the Bristol Zone, with First Bus and discounts at onsite bars. Advance purchase of wristbands will speed up entry to the festival site, and the provision of contact details will allow organisers to advise of any changes to the entry policy due to covid restrictions
