Belfast Pride Festival

Belfast, County Antrim, BT1 3ES


Pride Parade takes place on Saturday, July 27th at 1.00pm with build-up starting from 11.00 am.

Belfast Pride is the biggest event of the year for LGBTQIA+ people of Belfast and we’re back for 2024 and hope to have the biggest parade since we were founded back in 1991. 

Belfast Pride Festival is one of the biggest festivals in Belfast with over 150 events across 10 days. The festival runs from Friday 19th July to Sunday 28th July with Pride Day and the centrepiece Pride Parade on Saturday 27th July.

The Belfast Pride Parade is the main event in the LGBTQIA+ calendar, a major city event and the biggest cross community parade in Belfast. It is a protest and a celebration, a call for equality, a stand for solidarity and a celebration of the lives of LGBTQIA+ people in Belfast and beyond. In 2023, we had over 75,000 people attend and this year we hope to break that record. We want to bring our community and our city together again to celebrate LGBTQIA+ lives and continue to protest for full equality.

The parade takes place on Saturday, July 27th at 1.00pm with the parade build-up starting from 11.00 am. The route for Belfast Pride Parade 2024 is the same as the route in 2023. We aim to find the best way to fit everyone in, keep everyone safe and still get maximum visibility for the community.

The theme for Belfast Pride 2024 is Love Your Mind. Mental health is a subject that affects every person in a multitude of ways. Many people reading this will have had experience dealing with mental health issues personally, with a partner, our children, a family member or a friend.

In the Pride Village, we will be bringing a Pride themed market with information stalls as well as children’s entertainment, bouncy castles, music and quiet space all in an alcohol and smoke / vape free environment.
