Pride day starts with the Prade which gathers from 10am in Castle Park and departs at 11am. Visit our Parade Page for route maps and accessibility information.
With a whole week of events you may well want to come down ahead of Pride Day for our Comedy Event, Films or Theatre Performances or perhaps come and enjoy the pre-pride parties. There is also so much to do and see in Bristol, make your stay a bit longer!
