Have you ever wondered, whether there is interesting program for you at Prague Pride, even if you don’t speak Czech? Yessss, there is! This is a TOP 10 list made just for you.
- Prague Pride opening: on the evening of Monday, August 8, the gates of Pride Village on Střelecký Island in the center of the Old Town will be opened for the traditional opening concert.

- Prague Pride Parade: on Saturday, August 13, at 11:30 a.m., the participants of the Prague Pride Parade – one of the largest pride marches in the entire region – will begin to gather at Wenceslas Square. In the days before the covid-19 pandemic, attendance at the Prague Pride Parade reached up to 40,000 participants. The parade route goes from Wenceslas Square through the Old Town to the park on Letná hill.
- Pride Park: Letná Hill – that’s where Pride Park is located, where dozens of artists from all over Europe will take turns on six stages from 3 to 10 p.m., across musical styles and artistic genres. Among the headliners of the Saturday program are Lukas Graham (DK), Girli (UK), Tom Aspaul (UK), We Are Domi (CZ/NOR), DJs Cormack (UK), Amnesiac (PL), Young Majli (PL) and many others. The entire Pride Park program will be open to visitors free of charge. Don’t forget – you can join us at the Pride Park Partner Zone –
- Partner Zone in Pride Park: The Partner Zone is a quiet, enclosed section of Pride Park at Letná where you can escape the crowds, have a few alcoholic drinks and unlimited non-alcoholic drinks on us, and meet the headliners during their meet&greets – Girli, Tom Aspaul and Miss Petty can’t wait to meet you. The section also has its own toilets, and as the number of people is limited, there are no queues at the bar. Hurry and get your entrance ticket here.
- Pride Talk: a debate devoted day by day to all four neighboring states of the Czech Republic. Austria on Tuesday, Poland on Wednesday, Slovakia on Thursday and Germany on Friday. Except for the Thursday debates, all events are in English. Pride Talk is a unique event devoted to current topics connected to each of the country.
- Pride Conference: on Thursday and Friday, the international human rights Pride Conference will take place in Prague – a conference for the professional public on the subject of LGBTIQ+ human rights in the region of Central and Eastern Europe. You can register here. The conference language is English.
- Pride Voices: one of the mainstays of the Prague Pride program is Thursday’s inspirational talk show Pride Voices – guests from different parts of the world share their life stories here. Tickets for the event can be purchased in advance.
- Closing picnic at Pride Village: Forget your hangover remedies, the menu from our rainbow picnic will get you back on your feet after the Saturday night party. Meet your friends, eat and relax. There’ll be sweet, there’ll be savoury, there’ll be non-alcoholic, and for the adventurous, there’ll be alcoholic. Enjoy the last day of Pride before we say goodbye for another year.
