To say that Sitges is gay-firendly is not enough. Every year, this seaside village dresses up to host the celebration of the gay pride and thousands of people join the party. Music, colors, dancing and joy fill the streets of Sitges during five days.
Sitges is known to be one of the best LGTB+ destinations in Spain. Its location, very close to Barcelona, its fantastic beaches, its seafront restaurants and designer stores, the nightlife and, of course, its gay-friendly status, make this town a wonderful vacation destination.
This 2022, the Sitges Gay Pride will be held from June 8 to 12. A few days full of fun, music and parties by the Mediterranean Sea. In fact, Sitges Gay Pride is ranked as one of the top 5 in the world, according to CNN and Lonely Planet reports.
So, it is no surprise that Sitges Gay Pride has become one of the biggest events taking place in this seaside village. Every year, the number of people who come to our town to celebrate Pride and participate in the now famous parade increases. In previous years, more than 60,000 people filled the town with colors during the five days of the event.
Gay Pride 2022 in Sitges: what to do
During these days, the Sitges promenade will be transformed every night into a township full of shows, DJs and various performances with local and international artists. This year, the event features 80 free events.
The highlight of Gay Pride will be held on Sunday the 12th, when the long-awaited parade will take place. An event that has become a reference throughout Europe and has positioned Sitges as one of the world's gay pride capitals. The parade, which is free to attend, will start from 5 pm, and has more than 20 floats and about 2000 participants. However, if you don't want to miss any of the after-party in the Gay Village or the concerts, you can buy a VIP pass. This VIP pass will also allow you to be on a float during the parade.
Although the parade is the main attraction within the Pride celebrations, there are also special acts and performances scheduled each night. Most of the action will take place in the aforementioned Sitges Gay Pride Village, a small, custom-built, temporary outdoor village with bars, food stands and a stage. Some of this year's performances include tributes to artists like Britney Spears (Thursday, June 9), Black Eyed Peas (Friday, June 10), Back Street Boys (June 11) or ABBA (June 12). As well as the participation of Lady Diamond, Karla Bear, Mr. Chi, Salma Lucie and Tom Lee, among others. In addition, there are theme nights, such as Neon Night, White Night or Sailor Night.
Accommodation for Gay Pride 2022 in Sitges
If you plan to come to Sitges this year to celebrate Pride, we suggest you stay in town, especially if you want to attend more than one event. Of course, you can come to Sitges by public transport from Barcelona, as the distance between the two cities is only about 40 kilometers, but having to rely on public transport schedules and roads when you're having a good time is not optimal. As you can imagine, due to the amount of visitors arriving in Sitges during these dates, it is highly recommended to book accommodation for Gay Pride Sitges in advance.
