York Pride offers shedloads of entertainment for all the family to enjoy, including a funfair, stalls and music, while shops and businesses will be flying the flag to show their support.

There will be a parade from the York Minster to The Knavesmire where the main festivities take place. We recommend watching the parade from the flagged main street on Bishopthorpe Road where you can enjoy local delights from the cafes and bakeries before heading to the Knavesmire.
