Manchester Pride Parade

Manchester Pride Parade

28th August 2021

The Manchester Pride Parade is a march for equality and one of the Festival's most highly anticipated events. Thousands of people march proudly together through the streets of Manchester in front of tens of thousands of supporters and allies cheering them along the way. 2019's Manchester Pride Parade was our biggest and boldest yet, with a whopping 200 organisations, over 14,000 people marching and tens of thousands spectators filling the streets with colour!

This event is free to attend.

Please note that our plans for Manchester Pride Parade 2021 are based on the success of England's Roadmap out of lockdown published by the UK Government on 22nd February 2021. In 2020, we were unable to come together to march but we produced this incredible award-nominated film which charts 50 years of equality in Manchester. If, we are unable to come together to March in 2021, we will continue the fight for equality with another incredible initiative.
