Bristol Pride Parade


Bristol Pride is an annual celebration of the LGBT+ community.

This is Bristol's most colourful community celebration it's open and welcoming to all who champion equality and diversity.

Running from the 1 – 14 July there will be an array of events including the Pride Dog Show, Circus Night, Comedy, Film Festival and Theatre. 


Melanie C & Sink The Pink are the latest names to be announced for what is already shaping up to be the biggest and most diverse line up to date.Other names already announced for the festival include Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Disco legends Boney M, Sonique, Saara Aalto, Bristol Drum & Bass act Dr Meaker, Four of Diamonds, Hazell Dean and Ru Paul’s Drag Race’s Peppermint.

The Downs

The team are celebrating their 10th Anniversary of organising and delivering the award-winning festival, which was named in the 2018 Global Top50 Pride Festivals. Following last year’s record numbers, which saw 36,000 people attend the annual LGBT+ festival, Bristol Pride have already announced that they are relocating to the Downs this year, doubling their capacity and introducing new festival areas and events.

Pride Day

Pride Day will start with the Parade march in the city centre, which last year saw 12,000 people take to the streets in a colourful, empowering display to showcase visibility for the community and to declare loudly and proudly that hate and prejudice doesn’t belong in our city. A message more important than ever this year following a 23% increase in LGBT+ hate crime in the region.
