The parade is an opportunity for you to get involved with Wigan’s most successful LGBTQ+ event. It’s your chance to show Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning people from all over Wigan, Manchester and further afield the very best that Wigan has to offer.


The aim of Wigan Pride is to have fun, celebrate the LGBTQ+ community in Wigan and raise awareness of the inequalities and issues still facing LGBTQ+ people at home and abroad.

Wigan Pride is one of the town’s most highly anticipated events which will have hundreds of people marching proudly together through the town and thousands of supporters cheering us along the way.


More information coming soon.


This year we'd like you to join us as we turn the town into one of the largest parades Wigan has ever seen.
