Great news for the LGBT+ community – Kerry Pride have announced they’ll be making a big return in 2020.

So what can we expect from the Festival which was last seen in May 2015? The Kerry Pride committee have shared that the LGBT+ celebration will make its multicoloured way through the streets of Tralee with a Pride parade on Saturday, June 13, 2020.

While the Parade will be the centrepiece, it’s far from the only fantastic happening to be enjoyed. There will be a social night and an event for families in there also. Running from June 12 to 14, there’s bound to be a few more announcements before the grand weekend.

Chairperson of the Kerry Pride Festival, Morgan Queeney, shared, “We are delighted to announce the relaunch of Kerry Festival of Pride in 2020. We are coming together to foster a sense of pride, support and community for LGBTQ+ people living in Kerry.”

Congratulations to the organisers and the committee, it’s fantastic to hear of the big return. To keep up to date with goings on, make sure to visit their Facebook page here.

As we head into a new year, there’ll be a host of announcements for Pride celebrations up and down the country. While 2020 will hopefully see many more new Pride Festivals making an appearance, for now we provide links for Festivals that happened in 2019. It may still be early days for news, but these will be the places to find out!
