SATURDAY 29 JUNE
PRE-PARADE PARTY 4pm
PARADE START 6pm
For the fifth year running, Barcelona will host the largest Pride Festival in the Mediterranean – filling the downtown city streets with people, floats and performers.
The parade begins its journey at 6pm on Saturday 29 July, but you are invited to come around 4pm to enjoy the ambience of heated anticipation in the Parc de les Tres Xemeneies (49, Paral·lel Avenue) , and boundless eye candy. The parade route travels direct via Avinguda Paral·lel to Plaza Espanya – promising many kilometres of outrageous fun! On arrival at Avenida Maria Cristina (the street below the Magic Fountain), the Village will already be in full swing, and will transform into the main party, which will continue until 2am. The Village and The Avenue are open all day on both Friday and Saturday.
Floats and groups
The Pride Parade will be full of colourful floats and walking groups provided by associations, businesses and local groups. You, and the general public, are welcome to march in the parade as well.
To place a float or walking group, you must register in advance – regardless of your status. If you are on foot or with a small group of friends, registration is not necessary!

Have any doubts or questions? Consult our FAQ
The meeting point is at Plaça de les 3 Xemeneies– 16:00h on Saturday 29 June, 2013. (metro: Paral·lel). There will be a Group Marshall that will provide details of your exact position within the parade.
Can we request a specific location in the parade?
The order of the parade is drawn by lottery. Walking groups alternate between the floats to allow for space and flow management, and also to try and separate the music so that it does not crossover too much.
Can we bring a portable sound system?
Yes, as long as the system is battery or solar powered. You cannot use gas or diesel generators for safety reasons.
Can we distribute brochures or flyers?
Walking groups are welcome to give out flyers, brochures and gifts. You are not allowed to throw items, nor to slow down the parade by giving out items.
Can we carry posters or dress up?
Groups are encouraged to bring signs, banners and flags to make a statement. Today is about visibility – it is your opportunity to broadcast your message. You are welcome to dress up, but please be mindful of local civil laws – as liberal as they are!
