Update Fri 24 Feb, 2.30pm:
Unfortunately, due to the current weather forecast, today’s events for Pride in the Square, as part of Auckland Live Summer in the Square, are cancelled. At this stage, tomorrow’s programme will go ahead as planned, so we hope to see you there!
Auckland Pride is back for 2023 and serving a whole lot of excitement and colour at Aotea Square!
Get that party ‘fit on, strut your stuff and join THE celebration of all celebrations right here in the heart of Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland. Dance until you can’t feel your feet anymore, make new friends, celebrate yourself, and embrace all the queer joy at this bold and bright collision of pride, summer, and performing arts.
With two days full of everything you need in your life, catch some of Aotearoa’s finest queer performers. From DJs and drag artists to epic live music acts, including Valkyrie, Miss Geena, Hugo Grrrl, Sharon From Payroll, Jason Parker, and Little Bok Choy to name a few, get ready to jump from spoken words to dance and waacking all in one place.
Plus, there will be plenty of fun to be had for rainbow rangatahi and whānau, including documentaries, community chats and more.
Don’t miss this outrageously fabulous celebration, free in Aotea Square this February!
While you're visiting, make sure you stop by to enjoy a bite or a beverage from the Container in the Square Café and pop-up food trucks provided by Auckland Night Markets. Please note, BYO alcohol is not permitted.
This event is part of the 2023 Auckland Pride Festival. See the full programme at aucklandpride.co.nz
