Tender for Services

Responses to the Belfast Pride Event Services Tender and now open. The final date for tender submissions is 2 March 2024. Questions should be submitted to tender@belfastpride.com by 26 February 2024. 

Belfast Pride celebrates the LGBTQIA+ community in Belfast and is now one of the biggest festivals in the city, has the biggest single parade in Belfast and is the biggest Pride festival on the island of Ireland. The festival runs this year from Friday 19th July to Sunday 28th July with Pride Day on Saturday 27th July. We pack in over 150 events including talks, debates, workshops, family fun days, music and entertainment, the Belfast Pride Awards, exhibitions, arts and film events. The festival builds up to Pride Day on Saturday 27th July when Belfast comes alive with the biggest single parade in Belfast, a major concert at Custom House Square – Party in the Square, a family area at Donegall Quay – Pride Village and a whole host of other events across the city centre.


  • Ireland’s biggest LGBTQIA+ festival 
  • Reaching over 80,000 people every year 
  • Belfast’s biggest cross community parade 
  • Unprecedented community and business support 
  • Launched annually by the Mayor of Belfast in Belfast
The Belfast Pride Festival is organised by Belfast Pride, a charity that exists to deliver the festival each year. Belfast Pride receives some grant income from statutory bodies including Belfast City Council and we use advertising sales, concession rights, sponsorship, donations, fund-raising and merchandise sales to raise the cost of the festival and keep key events free of charge. We have updated our structure and formed a charitable company – Belfast Pride Ltd, to manage the festival and we have also registered as a charity with the Charity Commission for Northern Ireland.
