↑ 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 among the dozens of past PRIDE Barcelona 2017 activities, so you can get an idea of what’s coming!

Wednesday June 28th 2017

The day of LGBTI Pride will mark the kick off of PRIDE Barcelona 2017. From 7pm to 10pm, Plaza Universitat will be decked out to welcome the festivities’ opening ceremony. Nenuco will be the MC of the gala, during which EDJN, Gala Von Rich, Hidroboy and Las Bistecs will be performing.

Saturday July 1st 2017

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…11pm! It will be a unique opportunity to enjoy Barcelona’s LGBTI neighborhood, 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.

Sunday July 2nd 2017

In this edition, PRIDE Barcelona is turning to the world of sport in order to fight against LGBTIphobia in this area. As it couldn’t be any other way, PRIDE Barcelona has prepared, in collaboration with the Panteres Grogues, a day in which sport will be protagonist: PRIDE SPORTS DAY in OPEN CAMP.

The event, which will last from 10am until 7pm, will take place in the legendary Lluís Companys Olympic Stadium. Kick a penalty shot, become Moto GP drivers, run the 100-meter dash, show off your ability with the bow and arrow…this year, the year Barcelona celebrates its 25th anniversary since the Olympic Games, on PRIDE SPORTS DAY you too will feel like Olympic athletes.

Friday July 7th 2017

At 11:00am, the Village will open to the public at Moll de la Fusta, 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 starting at 5pm, a bubble blowing workshop at 6pm, and an arts and crafts workshop at 7pm.

The main stage will open at 12pm with I Love Dance, a Zumba Party masterclass that will make children and adults alike move to the rhythm of this fashionable fitness routine that’s taking over the world.

As expected, especially in a PRIDE celebration dedicated to the world of sport, there will be sports activities organized by the Paneres Grogues also taking place in Moll de la Fusta.

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

At 7pm, Patrick will present the now legendary high-heels race, a wild competition open to all of those willing to participate. A 250-euro prize will go to the fastest runner!

At 8pm, we will kick off the Miss Drag Gala, one of the most highly anticipated PRIDE events this year presented by The Bastard Family. 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 lineup: Nalaya Brown, Rozalla, Soraya Arnelas and the British pop sensation, Fleur East!

At 10pm, once the Miss Drag Barcelona 2017 winner has been announced, Moll de la Fusta will be home to the biggest open-air Foam Party in Europe! This year’s music will be at the hand of some of the best DJs out there: Ari Korrales, The Tripletz and Dani Toro!

Saturday July 8th 2017

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 center 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 kickoff of an event that, year after year, has become one of the favorites…HOLI PRIDE! A festival full of color, joy and music!

At 4:00pm, PRIDE Barcelona will be nearing its climax. Plaça Espanya 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 Moll de la Fusta, 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. Ares Teixidó and Mag Lari will be presenting a gala whose lineup of performing artists are sure to delight those attending. IMM Music, Julián Santos feat. Ismael Grau, Plugin, la Terremoto de Alcorcón, Lucía Pérez, la Casa Azul and Ruth Lorenzo!
And, after the spectacular muscial performances, the party will continue with DJs Set de Carlitos (Arena Disco), Djones and Nacho Chapado (Matinée Group)!

Sunday July 9th 2017

We know that the fast pace of events and celebrations during 12 days of PRIDE will make it difficult to peel yourself out of bed on Sunday. However, PRIDE Barcelona still has some things to offer! At noon, Gaixmple will be housing Vermuth Trans* & Lovers, where you’ll be able to enjoy today’s most fashionable drink: vermouth. If you add something to eat, good music, and even better company, can you think of a better plan to finish up the Mediterranean’s LGBTI Pride celebration? We can’t!
