Cape Town Pride

Celebrate LGBTQI rights with another round of rainbow-coloured parades, parties and pageants

Cape Town Pride twirls its way into town for the 13th consecutive year from Friday, 24 February to Saturday, 4 March 2017 to celebrate cultural diversity and to raise awareness for LGBTQI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex) issues in South Africa and across the continent.

This time around, calendar highlights include a fantastic selection of parties, parades and protests scattered across the nine-day period. But while the line-up may be both vast and varied, one thing remains constant: each event encourages  both LGBQTI folks and their straight allies to partake in the fun.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT THE 2017 CAPE TOWN  PRIDE

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
Tickets: This event is free, but please note that there is a R20p/p entry fee to 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?
Date and Time: Saturday, 25 February 2017 1pm - 7pm
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.

Pride Women’s Space
This year Cape Town Pride is catering for the ladies too. They’ve got a special section at Beaulah Bar, and there’s no doubt that there will be plenty of drink and fun going around!
Date and Time: Saturday, 25 February 2017 9pm - 2am
Venue: Beaulah Bar
Tickets: Tickets are available online via Quicket.co.za for R50p/p.

Pride Men’s Night
Taking place on the same night and at the same venue as the Pride Women’s Space is the Pride’s Men’s Night. When we say ‘same venue’, technically it is, but the Men’s Night is going down (or up rather) on the rooftop!
Date and Time: Saturday, 25 February 2017 9pm - 2am
Venue: Beaulah Bar
Tickets: Tickets are available online via Quicket.co.za for R50p/p.

Cape Town Pride Mardi Gras Carnival
This is the big event, and we cannot wait for the 2017 edition; it’s going to be bigger and better than ever! Watch and enjoy the spectacle that Cape Town only produces once a year!
Date and Time: Saturday, 4 March 2017 12pm - 8pm
Venue: Green Point Urban Park
Tickets: Tickets are available online via Quicket.co.za for R50p/p.
