Join us to celebrate the 20th Reykjavik Pride Parade and outdoor festival on Saturday, 17 August. This is a week later than previously but the celebrations starts on Thursday, 8 August and continue for ten days. The schedule will include informative and entertaining events, culminating in the Parade and outdoor festival on Saturday, 17 August.

The year 2019 is going to be a big one for queer society both in Iceland and worldwide. It’s both fifty years from the Stonewall riots, and Reykjavík Pride’s twentieth anniversary. To honor the Stonewall uprising, the watershed event that launched the modern queer rights movement, the largest queer event in the world, WorldPride, will take place June 2019 in New York City. Millions of people are expected to attend.

In 1999 fifteen hundred guests showed up for the first parade at Ingólfstorg. A year later twelve thousand people came to see the first Pride Parade. Today the parade is an annual event and one of the best-attended festivals in Iceland.
