Sitges Gay Pride Parade has been going on since 2009 at the village to celebrate the gay community in Sitges. This year marks the 10th anniversary of Sitges Gay Pride! The parade usually takes place at the Passeig Maritimo, following the coast and then back until it reaches the gay Beach of Playa de la Bassa Rodona. The parade gathers people from all around the world, gay, straight, bisexual, men, women, children (and so on) to celebrate equality among all. For participants, the event is free of charge, as well as its after parties around the village in Sitges. Although the parade itself takes place in one day, the festivities last for about about a week. For this year’s 10th edition, the official dates of Sitges Gay Pride are from the 1st of June to the 10th of June 2019.
In 2014, more than 45,000 people participated in the Sitges Gay Pride Parade. Sitges Gay Pride is considered to be one of the most important pride events in Europe. The route for last year’s parade in 2018 began in front of Kansas Restaurant and ended in front of Hotel Calipolis. The Sitges Gay Pride Parade is free, you can decide to hop in on the parade with a float. But keep in mind that registration is required. The Pride usually takes place in June, at the beginning of the summer in Spain, which attracts a lot of shirtless hunks who will love to enjoy the beautiful Spanish weather of Sitges and its incredible beaches.
A Pride VIP Gold Pass is available for sale for the five days of festivities. They cost €199 each and they give you access to the VIP Zone in the Gay Village Area.
