Oxford Pride is an important event celebrating the LGBTQIA+ community and bringing people together for an annual parade through the city centre on Pride Day.
Oxford Pride attracts thousands of people throughout the day. In addition to the parade, there will be Pride Day events featuring a variety of live entertainment, community and commercial market stalls, plus food traders, followed by more dancing in the streets as the party continues into the evening.
Local organisations, companies, trade unions and many more are welcome to join the parade. Organisations are invited to show their support and get their brand in front of the parade audience.
