On now: Prague Pride and Tolerance Festival

Wednesday, 10 August, 2011

Prague’s first Pride and Tolerance Festival runs 10 August to 14 August

If you want to do something to escape the tension in the UK, why not? There’s a full programme of events and if you’re there on Saturday, you can join the parade!

The highlights of the festival are the parade and concert on Saturday the 13th of August. There will be a festive parade through the city centre in the early afternoon. Individuals, companies and organizations will all join the celebration. The route will take the participants to Střelekcy Island where many local and international stars will perform. The line-up is still a secret but we promise it’s impressive. “The parade is new for Prague and we expect about 1500 people to take walk with us, many more people will be interested in the concert and festival venue, where we hope to receive thousands of guests.” the organization tells us.
