Northern Pride Festival (formerly Newcastle Pride) is returning for another jam-packed weekend of LGBT+ celebrations in the heart of Newcastle. From the 19th – 21st July 2019, the Northern Pride festival takes over both the historic Town Moor and Exhibition Park, with a range of unforgettable experiences, from big-name artists performing on the Main Stage to Family and Youth zones, a fairground and an array of food and drink options.
The Town Moor becomes the Pride Festival Arena, home to the Main Stage, food and drink and the fairground. This year, Exhibition Park joins the festival to become the Community Village, home to our Family & Youth Zone, Health & Wellbeing Zone, Rainbow Village stalls and some added extras that we can’t wait to tell you about.
The three-day festival includes the Stonewall Remembrance March, as a sea of rainbow flags, LGBT+ people, allies, individuals and organisations join together to parade through the city centre. Over 20,000 people joined us for the parade last year!
