Applications for the Belfast Pride Parade 2024 are now closed.
Applications closed on 30th June 2024.

Belfast Pride is the biggest event of the year for LGBTQIA+ people of Belfast and we’re back for 2024 and we hope to have the biggest parade since we were founded back in 1991. Here is everything you need to know about taking part in the parade as a community group, organisation, union, political group or business group. In 2023, we had over 75,000 people attend and this year we hope to break that record. We want to bring our community and our city together again to celebrate LGBTQIA+ lives and continue to protest for full equality.
