Saturday 8th May is the big street parade – the World Record Dragathon street party. This involves a massive parade in the afternoon and then a big stage show at the Yumbo. Entry to the Yumbo Centre is free for this but get there early so you can get a good spot. The last day is 9th May and there is the closing party and Chill Pill recovery party on that day.

    Hi Sam,

    The Gay Pride parade is a free event. You just find a spot on the side of the street and watch the floats coming past.

    There are lots of places open to get a bit to eat and many of the bars have terraces so you can get refreshments.

    The shows in the evening in the Yumbo centre are also free but turn up early for a good place to watch from. If you want to go to one of the clubs later on you might have to pay entry but most of the festivities are gratis 🙂

    Enjoy yourself!

    The parade itself is usually the local bars/gay venues doing their own floats/shows etc. Some of the gay bars in Gran Canaria feature entertainment, drag acts, comedy routines etc so you would need to contact them directly.
