What would summer in Stockholm be without this festive and popular celebration of LGBT culture? We are counting the days until Stockholm Pride starts - only 50 days left! The festival takes place the 26th of July – the 1st of August.
During the Pride festival Stockholm turns into a free zone for the LGBT-community, painting the city in the colours of the rainbow flag. Since it was first held in 1998, Stockholm Pride has grown to become Stockholm’s largest annual festivals, as well as the largest Pride celebration in Scandinavia.
The Pride festival culminates in the annual Stockholm Pride parade with about 50,000 participants and more than 500,000 spectators who gather to watch the procession of Viking Bears, Stockholm Queer Volleyball Team, gay policemen… you name it!
We’ll be there, will you?
