Show your pride, watch the parade
Melbourne's annual Midsumma Pride March recognises and celebrates Victoria's queer community, and celebrates its 21st anniversary on Sunday the 31st of January 2016. The theme for 2016 is "Marriage Equality".

The parade includes a broad range of groups from community associations, political parties, businesses, sporting clubs, and venues. The parade route runs the length of Fitzroy Street in St Kilda, ending near the beach.

Pubs and restaurants in the St Kilda area are usually full of spectators on the day, and an outdoor bar and social function are held at Catani Gardens at the end of the Pride March route. You can pack a picnic, or snack at some of the local food stalls and cafes.
