Last year over 50,000 people came together to celebrate equality and diversity. This year marks the event’s 20thbirthday, which will be the most exciting Pride Cymru event yet!

Pride Cymru’s Big Weekend was originally created in response to a rise of hate crime. Whilst diversity and equality is celebrated throughout the weekend, the fight against intolerance and abuse continues, as the Big Weekend continues to be one of the biggest events where minority groups can highlight the difficulties they face.

Whether you want to join the parade through Cardiff’s City Centre, enjoy live music or see local and national drag and comedy acts, Pride Cymru’s Big Weekend has something for everyone!

Accessibility for all!

The aim is to make the annual Big Weekend accessible for all. Visitors can expect British Sign Language interpreters and dedicated disability facilities including a Mobiloo on site. There will also be a disabled viewing platform for the main stage, which will enable everyone to enjoy the performances throughout the weekend.

Aligned with the ‘accessibility for all’, Pride Cymru welcomes families to join the festivities. The festival is for all, regardless of age; although, children aged 14 and under will have to be accompanied by an adult. There will be a dedicated family area for parents with children aged 16 and under. This year, a whole range of entertainment will take place within the Uber Family Area, including a dog show.
