About the Festival

Nau mai, haere mai ki Tāmaki Makaurau!  Welcome to the 2017 Auckland Pride Festival!

From 10–26 February, the people of Aotearoa’s most diverse city will come together to celebrate progress and make love under a mighty rainbow.

Moving forward into its 5th year, the Auckland Pride Festival is New Zealand’s largest and loudest social and cultural programme of events for our Rainbow communities (Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Takatāpui, Fa’afafine, Intersex, Queer), as well as our families and friends.

A celebration of culture, sexuality and gender identity, the 2017 Auckland Pride Festival will feature over 50 individual events – including local and international theatre and cabaret, art exhibitions, live music, film and digital media, literature, debates and discussions, drag and burlesque, sports and recreation, gardening, pets, pageants and parties!

Follow us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram to stay up-to-date on the latest Festival news and Pride related events.  Share the love and show your support with #aklpride.
