20th anniversary

Oxford Pride Parade 2023

Oxford Pride Parade returns to the streets for our 20th Anniversary. We believe Pride is both a celebration and a protest and encourage you to be your authentic selves as we march through the city.

Meet at Radcliffe Square and Catte Street (OX1 1BG) from 10.30 am. 

We’ll be marching left onto Broad Street then left onto Cornmarket to continue to Carfax and turn onto Queen Street. After passing Bonn Square the Parade continues over the rainbow crossing and splits to enter the various event sites via:

  • New Road into County Hall Chillout & Family Zone or
  • Big Screen viewing area at the Mound, or
  • Castle Street into Paradise Street and the Castle Quarter Stage or
  • Continue into and Paradise Square Gardens to chill,
  • Turn Again Lane and Norfolk St lead to the Variety Stage and community stalls at Leiden Square in Westgate.

If you are in a large group, please register here. On Pride Day, registered groups sign-in at the Rainbow Bus at Radcliffe Square. There will be an accessible area at the rear of the Rainbow Bus to wait before the march begins. The route is 1 mile and mainly on the road. The Parade/March leaves at 12 noon
