All together now!
Partying in St John's Square

Welcome to Blackpool Pride!

It may have rained on the 10th anniversary parade . . . but that didn’t stop Blackpool Pride 2016 being another massive occasion for the resort – and next year is only going to be bigger and better!

That’s the promise from organisers who extend all their thanks to everyone involved with, or who attended, this year’s weekend of summer fun.

 

Put the dates in your diary now for June 9-11 2017 with another host of events centred on Blackpool Winter Gardens and – come rain or shine – another glitzy parade along the resort’s world-famous Golden Mile promenade. With an extra day of Blackpool Pride 2017 there will seven stages in action inside and outside the Winter Gardens, and the venue will again be packed with colourful costumes and characters. Big names are promised in the line-up – so do watch this space!
