The 40th Anniversary Dublin Pride Parade takes place on Saturday, June 24th. Yes it’s been 40 years since the first Dublin Pride Parade went from Stephens Green to O’Connell Street. Just 3 months earlier, the first large scale LGBTQ+ march, often considered the birth of the modern Dublin Pride movement, went from Liberty Hall to Fairview Park. We’re planning our biggest ever Dublin Pride March and Parade and hope you’ll all join us as we protest, remember and celebrate.

For the history buffs: The very first Pride March in Dublin was in 1974 when a hand full of people went from the Department of Justice to the British Embassy.

How to take part in the Parade

Individuals and groups

There is no need to register, this a free event and you can just turn up on the day and join in the march. Remember, this is a march and a parade, we should always celebrate who we are and the hard fought achievements we have made, but there is still a long way to go and protest will always be at the heart of Pride.

Community Groups & Not for profit organisations

There is no fee to take part, we do ask you to register in advance to help us manage attendance. The front section of the Parade is reserved for LGBTQ+ community groups and has a strict no corporate branding policy. You can register you group here.
