Everything you need to know.

Message from the Festival Director

Wentzel April

#CPTPride2023 showcases events that represent our diverse community. The events include the Pride Party, Mr & Miss Cape Town Pride pageant, Divas Extravaganza, movie nights, book nights, poetry evenings, and for the first time, a 4-night Pride cruise aboard the luxurious Sinfonia, culminating in the Pride March and Pride Festival Mardi Gras on the 4 March 2023.

We are also deep into planning one of the most iconic #CPTPride events: The Pride Prom. It boasts the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra and Cape Town City’s most fabulous LGBTQIA+ musical talent.

While we host world-class events, Pride’s mission is clear: we provide a platform for the City’s LGBTIAQ+ community to:

raise awareness of the community’s issues;
facilitate campaigns that allow our people to live their lives on an equal footing;
help our diverse community remain visible and represented.

So, keep an eye on our socials and new website for updates on all the events that will take place. Can’t wait to see you there!
