Croydon PrideFest 2022 Official Press Release
Croydon Pridefest is back by popular demand
After two long years, the wait is over – Croydon PrideFest is back! As usual it will be welcoming the whole community to enjoy the entertainment, atmosphere and amazing food and drink on offer.
This year’s theme is ‘bringing the Love back into Croydon’ as well as celebrating Croydon’s LGBT+ community. The day will begin with a Pride parade travelling along North End, through central Croydon to Wandle Park, where the event will be hosted.
At this free event visitors will enjoy live music, cabaret, street food, licensed bars and stalls between 12-8pm. On stage we will have the star of Ru Paul’s Drag Race, Scarlett Harlett and back by popular demand, Abbalicious, Asifa Lahore, and Star - just to name a few.
This time attendees are asked to sign up for free tickets to ensure that there is good control of numbers at this amazing outdoor event.
Paula Goodwin, Chair of the Pride steering group added: “It’s great to see the return of the Croydon PrideFest after so long. I’m delighted that the Council and the Metropolitan police continue to show their support to Croydon’s LGBT+ community and thank them for their commitment to ensure the borough is a safe and welcoming destination for all.
