Darwin Pride Festival has been aroud for 32 years! 

In 1985, a group of passionate Darwinites came together to create the very first Darwin Pride Festival - promoting diversity, equality and celebrating LGBTIQ communities. These brave individuals shined the spotlight on issues that needed to change and celebrated what already made us shine. Three decades on, we're continuing what they began! 


We’re excited to bring to you a week long program that is as impressive and vibrant as the campest of tropical rainbows- paying tribute to our past, present and future. The first Darwin Pride event 30 years ago was a film night. To pay homage to its beginnings, the Festival will officially kick off with a colourful “Festival Launch” party and “Pride Film Night” (Sep 22nd), Films Mr GaGa and Tangerine. The week that follows includes a Youth Event at The Quater, Lawn Bowls and Kamp Karaoke, Fair Day & Pool Party, and so much more! Full Program here
