The official EuroPride 2019 motto “Visions of Pride” is an invitation to all to put their own personal visions into reality. More than one million visitors are expected to attend the festival spreading over several weeks in June 2019.
The annual Rainbow Parade, Regenbogenparade, is taking place in Austria’s capital since 1996, and has been attracting more and more participants and visitors ever since, meanwhile far beyond 100,000. In 2007, Vienna Pride was launched to act as an umbrella for all activities around the parade. Since 2010, the Pride Village has been organised, in most years at City Hall Square. Vienna had previously hosted EuroPride in 2001.
The Rainbow Parade will move along Vienna’s Ringstrasse boulevard and will take a stance in favour of tolerance and equality. The popular Pride Village will be set up on City Hall Square again with information and food stalls as well as loungers and a line-up of DJs to provide daily entertainment.
