Mr and Miss Cape Town Pride Pageant

It’s time to crown the ultimate King and Queen of Pride 2017!

After an insane Pride Festival for 2017, the whole party comes to a head (before the carnival obviously) with the crowning of Mr and Miss Pride 2017, which takes place at the Sea Point Civic Centre on Saturday, 25 February 2017. These lovelies will have a prime place during the Cape Town Pride Mardi Gras carnival that will be floating through Green Point on Saturday, 4 March 2017.

Contestants will strut their stuff in an effort to grab the title and hold onto it for a full year of fame and glamour. You’ll be able to watch the contest unfold, listen to lekker local artists, drink from the fully stocked bar and just generally have a jol.

This pageant forms part of the Cape Town Pride Festival for 2017, along with lots of other events; have a look below for the details on all the others!


Cape Town Pride Pink Party
This bash will inject some pink into this year’s festival, and this annual party never disappoints. Don your best fushia wears and glam it up with everyone’s favourite colour.
Date and Time: Friday, 24 February 2017 8pm - 4am
Venue: De Waterkant Village and Crew Bar

Cozy Pool Party Pride Edition
Everyone needs a little swimwear at Pride Festival and this one is being hosted at The Deck Rooftop Pool and Bar. There is no dress code at this event but I think to be safe, say that less is more. Speedos anyone?

Venue: The Deck Rooftop Pool and Bar
Tickets: Tickets are only available for pre-sale for R150p/p and you can get your hands on them by dropping a message to +27 (0)71 119 6622 or heading to Cafe Manhattan in De Waterkant.

Venue: Beaulah Bar
Tickets: Tickets are available online via for R50p/p.

Pride Men’s Night

Date and Time: Saturday, 25 February 2017 9pm - 2am
Venue: Beaulah Bar
Tickets: Tickets are available online via for R50p/p.

Venue: Green Point Urban Park
