Bristol Pride is a not for profit charity and it’s always great to hear from organisations that want to support Pride to happen. There are lots of ways you can do this from getting involved with the parade, becoming a sponsor, trading, or volunteering your time.
If you are interested in ways to support Pride have a look at one of the options below or get in touch to discuss your idea.
We don’t get any core funding to deliver Pride so your support is vital to ensure that Pride continues to happen each year and remain a donation entry event.
Our 2023 Marketing Pack is now available! From sponsorship, brand activation or outreach you can reach thousands of people at Pride Day.
Bristol Pride 2022 saw over 40,000 people visiting Pride Day, 20,000 people on the parade and a packed 2 week-long festival of events across Bristol including sell-out theatre and comedy nights and Queer Vision Film Festival at Watershed.
As well as Lead Partnership including our VIP area we also offer Festival Partnership, Supporter Tier and bespoke options. In fact, we have many ways to market your brand and understand that organisations have different needs. Opportunities exist for sponsoring Pride Week events, recruitment packages, marketing consultancy & year-round partnerships with Pride.

An incredible 20,000 people took part in the Bristol Pride Parade last year and we’re thrilled to be returning to the streets in 2023!
If you are a member of the public the Parade is free to enter and you do not need to register. Large groups do need to register but entry may still be free for you.
We operate a tiered pricing system for varying sized organisations to help enable smaller organisations to be able to join us.
