Awaiting Dates for 2020
The hottest party in Africa’s Rainbow Nation!
When it comes to Gay Pride Cape Town has its own style, with hot winter sun, pristine beaches and the backdrop of Sugarloaf Mountain you just know it’s going to be magical.
The theme of Cape Town Pride 2019 is “No Excuses. No Regrets.” The Pride is partnering up with Cape Town Carnival who will be lending some of their costumes to add extra fabulosity to the parade on the day of the event. The festival includes a variety of events such as drag shows, book launches, sporting events, film shows, poetry reading, and art exhibitions.
The Pride officially kicks off on Saturday 23rd February 2019 with three very popular events taking place. The legendary Cozy Pool Party – Pride Edition, The Kasi Pre- Pride Party in Gugulethu taking place in the afternoon, then The Mr and Miss Cape Town Pride Pageant taking place at the Joseph Stone Auditorium (Athlone) in the evening.
The Main Event which is the highlight of the Queer Calendar is the Pride March taking place on Saturday 2nd March 2019 at 12 pm. The Parade will start at Prestwich Street in De Waterkant and move towards Reddam Field at the Green Point Urban Park.
The Mardi Gras is the party that immediately follows Pride and this year it will be held on Reddam Field in Green Point Park with a variety of entertainment on stage to enjoy such as some of the best drag acts, live bands and singers which the Mother City has to offer.

Gay CAPE TOWN Hotels
The heart of Gay Cape Town is De Waterkant, a leafy suburb, similar to New York’s Greenwich Village, and is just a short walk from the centre of the city. It boasts a unique village atmosphere during the day, amplified by popular Cape Quarter restaurants and shopping spots. At night, however, Cape Town’s ‘gaybourhood’ is alive with energy. This is where the hot gay boys of Cape Town mix it up with tourists from around the world.
