Pride Parade route this year!
This year we will be gathering in Abbey Street carpark from 12pm.
We will then flow into our groups and organisations with the help of our volunteer stewards to follow out the Sligo Pride banner.
The Parade follows on from Teeling Street, turning left on to Castle Street before moving forward on to Grattan Street. Then we shall turn right, on to Sligo’s main street, O’Connell Street. The final leg of the Parade route will be to march over Hyde Bridge and on to Stephen’s Street.
Following on from our early partnership with Sligo Summer Festival for #SligoPrideComeback in 2019, we are delighted to confirm that our “Sligo Pride Takeover” will be happening again in 2021 between 3pm and 5pm.
Sligo Pride Route and Accessibility
Sligo Pride aims to provide a safe, warm and friendly atmosphere for everyone. As such when it came to selecting the Pride Route for 2019 we have endeavoured to speak with Sligo County Council and listen to our own constituents.
Whether you are using a wheelchair, walking with limited mobility, or Visually Impaired we want you to have a safe and enjoyable Pride experience with us.
The Pride Route is shorter this year than in previous years. While there are some road works on O’Connell Street we hope that this means more people with hidden and unseen disabilities or conditions feel empowered to walk with us.
If not, we are advising that people either select a spot along the top of O’Connell Street or Hyde Bridge as we all converge on Stephen’s Street Carpark to join Sligo Summer Festival from 3pm. Our friends at Sligo Summer Festival have accessible/priority seating area close by to the stage where you can party along to our wonderful Pride Performers!
