↑ Return to PRIDE 2018



We are already working on PRIDE Barcelona 2018 Activities. As usual, it will be full of festivities!  Music, workshops, dance, sports, live shows, exhibits, the biggest foam party in Europe, galas and much more!

Here we offer you a selection of the most important events you can’t miss, so you can get an idea of what’s coming!

Saturday June 23rd 2018

Once again entrepreneurs of all types will take to the streets to celebrate Gaixamples’ IX Business Fair (Consell de Cent street, between Casanova and Aribau street), from 11am until 8pm. It will be a unique opportunity to enjoy Barcelona’s LGBTI neighbourhood, discover a variety of its shops and services directed towards the LGBTI community, and to let yourself become absorbed in the musical acts and other shows that PRIDE has in store.


Thursday June 28th 2018

The day of LGBTI Pride will mark the kick-off of PRIDE Barcelona 2018. From 7pm to 01am, Plaza Universitat will be decked out to welcome the festivities’ opening ceremony.

Friday June 29th 2018

At 11:00am, the Village will open to the public at Maria Cristina Avenue, the perfect place to enjoy a large part of the PRIDE activities, get to know the organizations and associations that are participating in the event, and discover the bustling shops and restaurants there. At the same time, PRIDE Kids will have its inauguration. Here, a varied selection of activities and games will make the little ones shout for joy: trampolines to jump on all day long, a storytelling corner, a bubble blowing workshop, and an arts and crafts workshop.

As expected, there will be sports activities organized by the Panteres Grogues also taking place in Maria Cristina Avenue.


In the afternoon, PRIDE will really kick off with the following sequence of events:

First, the now legendary high-heels race, a wild competition open to all of those willing to participate. A prize will go to the fastest runner!

After the race, we will kick off the Drag Con, one of the most highly anticipated PRIDE events. Some of the best out there will put on their best performances in order to reach that first-place prize. This year’s gala has a fantastic line-up!

Finally, once the Drag Con Barcelona 2018 winner has been announced, Maria Cristina Avenue will be home to a massive party! This year’s music will be at the hand of some of the best DJs out there and will include amazing performances!


Saturday June 30th 2018

Despite a long day of events the day before, PRIDE Barcelona won’t be resting! Starting at 11:00am, the Village will open once again as the centre of the festivities, and throughout the day PRIDE Kids will continue to offer games and workshops for children and those adults who want to feel like kids again by participating in awesome events like the Water Fight.

At noon, one of PRIDE’s most awaited moments will arrive with the kick-off of an event that, year after year, has become one of the favourites…HOLI PRIDE! A festival full of colour, joy and music!


At 4:00pm, PRIDE Barcelona will be nearing its climax. The Tres Xemeneies Park will become the scene for the concentration of people preparing for the demonstration. Musical performances will serve as entertainment until, at 5:00pm, the demonstration will begin its route down Paral·lel Avenue. Around 7:30pm, the demonstration will arrive at Maria Cristina Avenue, where the PRIDE manifest will be read.

There, starting at 8:00pm, the big party will commence. It will include the weekend’s best musical performances, gathering together thousands of people who will have come to show their LGBTI pride on the Mediterranean coast. The Village will host a gala whose line-up of performing artists are sure to delight those attending.
And, after the spectacular musical performances, the party will continue with the best DJs Set!
