Vienna Pride 2018

Vienna Pride 2018

Vienna Pride 2018 will be bigger, more spectacular and more important than ever before. With a view to EuroPride 2019 in Vienna, we can be curious to see what the organisation has come up with. We’ll summarize everything for you.

There are a lot of events this year - also off the Pride Village and the Rainbow Parade we would like to tell you about. As every year, the rainbow flag was hoisted at the town hall and many public offices and the trams - thanks to the Vienna Lines - also run with the LGBTIQ symbol throughout the city. Many institutions organize rainbow tours, such as the University of Vienna.

Pride Village 2018

The popular Pride Village on Vienna’s Rathausplatz is entering the next round and will take place this year from 12 to 16 June. As usual, a large number of associations with information stands will be on site, as well as a wide range of gastronomy offers refreshing drinks and refreshing refreshments for visitors. As in the years before, one entertainment highlight follows another in 2018, but in preparation for the Euro Pride 2019, this year’s Pride Village will be one thing above all: even more colourful, even louder, even better! Look forward to top-class entertainment, award-winning music line up, danceable DJ*ane sets, comedy acts, readings, lectures, workshops and much more. So that also the informative part does not come too briefly, it will give thematic emphasis on different days, like e.g. the Medical Day, where your exciting, up-to-date relevant health topics are presented or also the Pride Business Corner, in which considerable companies will prepare LGBTIQ topics and inform about equal rights and diversity at the job. 
Be there if you want to set an example for diversity and tolerance, if you want to hold solidarity with LGBTIQ people high and celebrate life!
