Newcastle Pride Parade: Celebrating Diversity and Bernie’s 1st Birthday Bash! - Newcastle Pride

Join us for the 2nd annual Newcastle Pride Foreshore Parade as we kick off Pride Month in style! 

This vibrant outdoor parade along our beautiful foreshore is a celebration of local LGBTIQA+ culture, diversity, and equality. We invite you to embrace your true self and come out and paint the Newcastle foreshore with a sea of rainbow.

As we all sashay our way along the foreshore, we will be marching towards Bernie’s Bar to kick off their 1st Birthday celebrations! 

Bernie’s celebrations begin at 4:00 pm starting with a sizzling BBQ followed by an afternoon DJ session from 4pm.

For those who want to continue the celebration into the evening, get ready for an incredible line up of local performers including Nova Hudson, Billie Burnout, Miss Stress, and Han Superguy, along with the winner or runner-up from the Second Heat of breakout.

Our fantastic DJs Kittamine, Tiff, and Queerio will keep the night alive with their beats and energy!
