Croydon Pride was established in 2017 to promote LGBT+ tolerance and equality within Croydon’s diverse communities by staging inclusive events. We are a UK-registered charity and responsible for organising Croydon PrideFest – one of London’s largest Pride festivals.
We receive no core government funding and funds are instead raised in a variety of ways including donations, sponsorship and fundraising events.
We are so happy that we can announce the return of Croydon PrideFest. After a two-year break we will be back in Wandle Park on Saturday 16 July 2022. We had to pause after the great successes of previous PrideFests due to the Pandemic, we are now delighted to be able to return to promote LGBT+ inclusiveness and equality, re-establishing our festival as one of Croydon’s flagship cultural events.
The day begins at 12pm with a parade through Croydon’s town centre, making its way to Wandle Park for the main festival. As usual the park will include live music on the main stage – in 2019 we had some stand out performances from David McAlmont, Kim Mazzell and Lady Lesshurr. This year, we are lining up some equally amazing acts to wow the crowds.
