For the safety and enjoyment of all attending the Dublin LGBTQ+ Pride Parade, An Garda Siochana and Dublin City Council request that patrons leave bags at home on event day.
In line with standard protocol for recent events, backpacks and large bags will NOT be allowed. Only small bags measuring no bigger than A5 (14.8 × 21 cm, 5.8in x 8.2in) will be permitted into both St. Stephens Green South and Smithfield Square.
There will, of course, be exceptions made for people with medical conditions and children, but for the sake of everybody’s safety, all bags will be thoroughly searched.
This is a family fun non-alcoholic and drug-free event.
Management reserve the right to refuse admission.
