Pride 2023 | Albany Pride Festival
Pride 2023
3rd March - 12th March, 2023

Albany Pride Festival is back for 2023, and it promises to be another spectacular year!

The theme for this year’s festival is “Let’s Get Visible” – and you can find out more about that here!

Pride Festival 2023 brings back old favourites like Drag Bingo, a big Pride Festival Party, parkrun, Drag Story Hour, Rock Climbing, and more – but also introduces a sports carnival, new talent to the Pride Festival, a Politics in the Pub event, rollerskating, and more shows at our long-term partners at the Albany Entertainment Centre.

We will also be observing International Women’s Day with some very special events, too.

Have a look at our preliminary lineup – there’s still more to come!
