The 2017 Auckland Pride Parade will celebrate the brilliant achievements of the rainbow communities – but also turn the spotlight on issues that still obstruct full equality.
Ponsonby Road will be packed full of love, light and colour on Saturday 25 February when Aotearoa’s largest and loudest carnival of change and diversity processes up Auckland’s hippest strip at the later time of 7.30pm!
The 2017 Auckland Pride Parade commences with a traditional ribbon-cutting ceremony at the north end of Ponsonby Road, near the Tole Street intersection, before processing south along Ponsonby Road towards Karangahape Road.
Western Park will once again host the grandstand seating and VIP area, with live entertainment, private bar, food outlets and fantastic views!
The festival celebrates Auckland’s cultural and sexual diversity and bringing focus to the important issues that face New Zealand’s Rainbow communities (gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, takatāpui, fa’afafine, intersex, queer) in 2017 and beyond.
