After two years of restricted celebrations, Cork Pride will make its highly anticipated return this July. Festivities kick off on July 23, and run all the way to the day of the parade on Sunday, July 31.
The theme of this year’s event is ‘Proud to be…’ and attendees can look forward to a range of exciting happenings. Those participating in the march will assemble on Grand Parade from 1PM on Sunday and will start moving at 2PM. The crowd will make its way to the Cork Pride Afterparty venue down by the Lee at Kennedy Quay, with first arrivals expected at around 3PM. Registration for this year’s parade is open now, with interested parties being asked to submit their applications before July 8.
The Cork Pride Party is being headlined by none other than Nadine Coyle from Girls Aloud, who will be joined by fellow Derry girl Brooke Scullion who is fresh off her 2022 Eurovision campaign. Other acts such as Sparkle, The Guilty Judges, local Drag talent Kabin Studio, and Red FM DJs are all set to grace the stage in an unmissable display hosted by the fabulous Paul Ryder. To put the cherry on top of the cake, admission is free and everyone is welcome to join the party in the Rebel County.
