Blackpool Pride Festival Parade

This year the Parade will be sponsored by Blackpool BID we’re planning on making it as big, bold and bright as ever for 2016!  Regardless of sexual orientation, we invite everyone to take part and show that they believe in LGB&T equality and diversity in Blackpool. We want to light up the famous Golden Mile with a spectacular rainbow display, so what are you waiting for?  Come and take part!

The Parade starts at 11am at The Sandcastle Waterpark (next to South Pier) making its way along the Promenade towards North Pier. The Parade will then turn right into Church Street through the town centre, heading towards St. Johns Square in front of the Winter Gardens. This is where the Parade will end and the opening ceremony for Blackpool Pride Festival will take place before the events begin inside the Winter Gardens.

Everyone is welcome to join in and the route is accessible,  staying on the road surface (virtually level access from start to finish). There are volunteers on hand to help too. Alternatively, we suggest that those who find walking difficult join us on Church Street as we leave the Promenade.
