Here is the news you've all been waiting for - Pride is BACK!

Following two years of Covid restrictions leading to the cancellation of the event, the pride team is thrilled to announce plans for this year's Pride.

Doncaster Pride will take place at Elmfield Park on Saturday 6 August and will be a return to the usual format with live music, entertainment, market stalls and the Parade. In addition, there are a number of new features planned for the larger space including a family area, a quiet space, a dance tent and silent disco are also on the list of things being added.

But there’s more… Pride now will begin a week earlier with a return of the ‘town pride’ format of 2021

In 2021 with restrictions permitting only small gatherings the Pride team made a passionate plea to the town to help us deliver the event. The original plans were to host 8 mini Prides in 8 different venues, but the requests to be a part of the event flooded in and eventually over forty mini events were delivered.

Doncaster stood up for the LGBT+ Community and Doncaster Pride and because of this legacy town pride returns on 30 July and we will once again be asking venues to get involved.

It's so important that these events continue and that the venues that stood up for us when we needed them are again packed to the rafters with customers. The economic recovery of these businesses and our town is hugely important and if we can give them a big day then we feel that’s what we should do.

But that’s not all…

Doncaster Pride is committing itself to going GREEN. The trustees have committed to the implementation of a series of measures that will be more environmentally friendly.

We are looking at alternative power sources, recycling and only contracting with suppliers who have the same ethos as us and do all they can to reduce their waste. So no more single-use plastics and no more non-recyclable food cartons is just the start. We want to make Doncaster Pride more environmentally considerate and to do our bit for future generations
