Saturday is the Main Event at Castle Square with a parade through the streets of Chester starting at noon followed by the main stage event with a line-up of local and national acts. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Councillor Louise Gittins, Leader of Cheshire West and Chester Council, said: “At Cheshire West and Chester Council we believe that we all have a part to play in creating a world where everyone can be themselves.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“The Council has played a part in Chester Pride since its first ever event and it is wonderful that we are all able to take part once again after COVID-19 prevented it from taking place in person.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Pride increased visibility of our local LGBT+ community over the decade and, this year, all are welcome to be a part of the 10th year anniversary celebration.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Visitors to Chester are encouraged to use the park and ride services in the city. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
