Manchester Pride Parade 2012

The parade

A carnival atmosphere will fill the streets of Manchester and is set to enthrall the thousands of spectators - young and old, gay and straight, friends and family - who come down to see the glamorous and the outrageously fabulous people who take part!

This year the parade starts at 13:00 on Saturday 23 August

Please note - you do not need Big Weekend tickets or wristbands to watch the parade, however, you will need them to get into the Big Weekend site in and around Canal Street afterwards!

Parade Theme

We will be announcing the theme in the coming months.
