About the event
For the first time since the start of the pandemic, we're marching!
Folkestone Pride will be holding a parade to mark the start of our Pride celebrations and honour the tradition of remembering the Stonewall uprising.
You are welcome to line the high street and cheer us on, but if you want to join the parade itself please pre-register here and we'll see you there!
We welcome everyone to march, whether you are an individual, with friends or families!
People of all ages can join the Parade. Children under five do not need to register. All attendees under 16 must be accompanied by a responsible adult (18+).
Please note that this is a community pride so although we welcome individuals from larger organisations, the only 'official' groups we welcome are community groups and charities.
