The first Cambridge Pride comes to Jesus Green on 8 June with a packed programme of entertainment.
Events get underway at midday on the green, but there is a river parade starting half an hour earlier from Quayside. With a main stage, band stage, youth tent, community lounge, a well-being area, food stalls galore and a children’s area, not to mention Enchanted Cinema, there’s guaranteed to be lots going on wherever you look. Cambridge has a long history of LGBTQ+ events – with Cambridge Pride organisers, Pink Festival, a big part of that – so it might seem a bit surprising that Cambridge has never had an official Pride parade or festival. All that will change this month!
The river parade is the first Pride parade anywhere on water and among the acts confirmed to play are Keltrix, Colonel Spanky’s Love Ensemble and singer-songwriter Craig Maddox.
Entry is free, and you can get the details as they are announced by searching Cambridge Pride on Facebook and Twitter.
