Pride 2024 | Albany Pride Festival
Pride 2024
22nd February - 4th March

Albany Pride Festival is back for 2024, taking place 22nd February to 4th March.

The theme for 2024 is “We are Family” – a celebration and recognition of our strength as a community, the support we can offer each other in the face of opposition and attempts to divide us, an understanding of our Queer history of holding each up and accountable, and the incredible intersectional diversity that exists within our broad, beautiful Queer family.

A thank you to our wonderful Pride 2024 team:

Millie Reid (She/Her) – Festival Coordinator
Karen Timmins (She/Her) – Marketing Coordinator & Sponsorship Team
Darren Moir (He/Him) – Albany Pride Treasurer & Sponsorship Team
