One of the main events will again be the parade, on Sunday, June 9, which will feature 19 floats and more than 2.000 participants from 5 p.m. on the Passeig de la Ribera. The programme also includes festive, cultural, educational and gastronomic activities.

Sitges Pride is coming to its thirteenth edition from 5 to 9 June with the expectation of more than 45.000 people in Sitges to take part in the events organised during these five days. This event has been ranked as one of the top 5 LGBTIQA+ Pride events in the world by CNN, National Geographic, among others, and has recently been ranked by the travel guide Lonely Planet as one of the 12 best places to celebrate Pride in Europe.

This year’s Sitges Parade, under the slogan #sitgeslovesyou, invites visitors to showcase the “True Colours” and claim Sitges as a haven for the LGBTIQA+ community and a welcoming destination.

The highlight of the event will be the Parade, the Pride Parade, which will take place on Sunday, June 9, at 5 p.m. on Passeig de La Ribera. The tour will feature 19 floats and more than 2.000 participants to claim equality and the rights of the collective. The starting point will be from the outside of the Kansas restaurant towards the Fragata and back along the Passeig de la Ribera to reach the Hotel Calipolis with Avenida Sofia.

According to the organisation, the event is expected to register almost 100% occupancy in hotels and apartments in Sitges.

AFGAL, the organizing association of Sitges Pride, has presented this Thursday the official programme for the 2024 edition, which will feature more than 60 artists on the main stage during the five days of Pride.

The program with more than 45 free events will take place on the Passeig de la Ribera with a very important musical component. Cultural events, exhibitions, networking and conferences will take place in parallel with the festivities during the day and night. Every afternoon there will be free shows and concerts at the Passeig de la Ribera starting at 8 p.m.

Throughout the event, the Pride Village will host concerts and tributes to singers such as Tina Turner, Madonna, Cher, Raffaela Carrà, Pink and groups such as Roxette, ABBA, Black Eyed Peas and BackStreet Boys. The village will be located on Passeig de la Ribera opposite the Hotel Calipolis.
