Mother Pride Block Party are celebrating their 10th Anniversary in 2020. On Saturday June 27, Mother will back with a bang and partnering once again with Dublin LGBTQ Pride as the official post-parade party.

Taking place in the historic grounds of the National Museum of Ireland, Collins Barracks – Mother Pride Block Party will be bringing you the biggest Pride production Dublin has ever seen.

Starting out as a spontaneous street party outside Mother, the Pride Block Party grew year on year. Each time gaining in popularity, from that small cobbled street outside their original club to Meeting House Square then a move to the Tivoli Theatre and now their beautiful home at the National Museum of Ireland.

Speaking about this year’s celebration, promoter Cormac Cashman said: “We’ve come a long way in the past decade and we’ve done it’ all for the love of our community and the joy of throwing a party that is a queer, inclusive and super fun space for LGBT+ people and our allies. The Mother team identifies as a chosen family and that’s grown in the past ten years with thanks to the people who come party with us and make our work the best in the world.

“We can’t wait to swing open those 300-year-old gates and flood the festival venue with inclusivity, joy & pride. We’re installing two stages, tonnes of bars, super tasty food stalls, activations, art installations & much more (not to mention a few surprises thrown in!) “

There are limited Super Early Bird tickets on sale now. Last year’s Pride Block Party sold out two months in advance so make sure you grab yours now!

Keep those eyes peeled as the Mother crew will be revealing the incredible line-up very soon.
