Pride March Adelaide 2023
The 2023 Pride March Adelaide will be held on Saturday 28 October, 2023. Registrations for community groups, organisations and supportive businesses will open in July. The march will be followed by a series of parties at venues around Adelaide.
Pride Adelaide is a non profit incorporated association and coordinates Adelaide's annual queer LGBTIQA+ Pride March, where thousands of queer friends and family take to the streets of Adelaide to celebrate LGBTIQA+ queer identity, history, culture, diversity, solidarity, inclusiveness, and creativity.
Adelaide's first queer "Proud Parade" was held in 1973. The modern Pride March Adelaide has been held yearly from 2003 to 2019. In 2020 and 2021 the march could not be held due to COVID restrictions, and Pride Adelaide instead hosted a live-streamed performance event. The street march returned in 2022.
