Paekākāriki Pride Festival

A Rainbow in the Village

Paekakariki Pride Parade

Unfortunately we've had to make the difficult decision to postpone several of the indoor events for this year's Pride Festival due to Covid:(. We're pretty gutted and we know you will be too.

With the surge in cases around Wellington and in the village as well as in our organising team, and performers, we can't risk having indoor events with large groups of people - our most important goal is to keep everyone safe.

Therefore, Man Lessons, The Kids Disco, Old Skool Disco, Pride Concert (Joyful and Defiant) and the Quiz will be postponed.

We will look at running them later in the year or early next year, Covid depending.

BUT, the good news is that we're still running the outdoor events where people can distance, wear masks and be in the fresh air. 

So this means the famous Parade, the swim and the dog show are all go. 

The True Colours (Meet & Mingle) will now be outside on the deck at Finns, bring your jackets.

We are sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but hope you'll understand our position and that you'll still be able to enjoy the activities on offer in our beautiful village.

Updated programme is below.

Watch this space for ticket announcements.

All the best and Happy Pride! ❤💜
