ABOUT BENIDORM PRIDE
From a small beginning back in 2011 when just 3,000 people came to witness the first ever Benidorm gay Pride parade, in 2019 over 15,000 visited Benidorm during the big gay week that has now morphed into the “Benidorm Pride Festival”, a week long event.
Following the cancellation of the 10th anniversary Pride in 2020 and a quieter 2021 pride next year sees the 11th anniversary since the first Benidorm pride and is sure to THE big one!
Thanks to a small team of hard working enthusiastic organisers and with the full backing of (most) local bar owners and a 100% positive approach toward the event from the Town Hall, gay Pride in Benidorm has become the final go to closing party of the year. It is the last big Pride event in Europe, at the tail end of the summer season.
What makes Pride Benidorm unique is the fact that it happens in the largest purpose-built tourist resort in Spain. When most Pride events consist of a day or maybe two, when everyone goes home at the end of the Parade or the next morning, Benidorm Pride can be combined with a 7 night or 14 night BIG gay holiday in Spain in 2022.
Benidorm combines the Festival with those who are also on holiday for a week or two. This and the guaranteed HOT sunny weather, plus over 25 gay venues to enjoy all plonked in the heart of the quaint old town, with big brash Benidorm and its 1,000 places to eat, sleep and play, what is not to like about a gay Pride event with so much added fun.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Naturally it is all about the rainbow, everywhere across the resort and especially in the old town the rainbow flag will be hanging out to say we are here, we have tons of love to share and it is our time to be mad and a little bit bad. Pride 2021 will be the special late 10 year edition, with a few restrictions on events and closing times depending on how things are as the date draws closer.
The true meaning of the Pride Festival will be found in the local gay bars, they are the folks who give 100% 365 days of the year and every bar will have it´s own fabulous events to keep the party going as a thank you to all those loyal customers.
