Vienna Pride and Rainbow Parade

Vienna Pride will last two weeks this year. For these fourteen days, Vienna will be the center of the LGBT community. Numerous parties, art and information events, live performances and of course the Rainbow Parade on June 16, 2018 will turn up the heat in Vienna and make a visible statement for the acceptance of LGBT people and against their exclusion. The Pride Run will be held for the first time in 2018. And a Pride Beach will be set up on the Danube Canal. The focal point of the activities will once again be the Pride Village, which will be erected from June 12 to 16, 2018 against the beautiful backdrop of City Hall.
