Pride Parade

Saturday August 6 at 2pm – From Vatnsmýrarvegur to Arnarhóll

The parade will be set up on Vatnsmýrarvegur by Læknagarður and the BSÍ central bus station. When the parade starts we march on to Sóleyjargata, Fríkirkjuvegur and Lækjargata where we will pass the stage by Arnarhóll where the concert after the parade will take place. Sound systems and generators will be fitted on trucks and cars at Fiskislóð 39 (D on map), by a warehouse owned by Forlagið. This parade route gives the participants a lot of space so it is important that decorations are well made.

Our parade gets bigger and more fabulous every year but we still want every group to convey some message that addresses the realities of LGBTQ people. There are an infinite number of possible messages so participants’ creativity is key. To ensure your group is the best it can be it is recommended to start preparing early. A good show does not have to cost much, what is most important is imagination and getting help from friends and family.

Starting point (A) on Vatnsmýrarvegur by BSÍ and ending at the outdoor stage by Arnarhóll (B).
