The Dublin Pride Festival is an annual series of events which celebrates lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning (LGBTQ) life in Dublin, Ireland. It is the largest LGBTQ pride festival in the Republic of Ireland.
The festival culminates in a pride parade which is held in June. The event has grown from a one-day event in 1983 to a ten-day festival celebrating LGBT culture in Ireland with an expanded arts, social and cultural content.
The organisation, including the board of directors, is run by volunteers with some paid consultant help. The stated aim of Dublin Pride is to produce a professional pride festival and an annual Pride Day; comprising the parade through Dublin city center, a politically based rally and free entertainment all working for the improvement of LGBTQ communities.
