About Maspalomas Gay Pride

Maspalomas Gay Pride is one of Europe’s biggest and most-celebrated LGBTQ events, with thousands of locals and tourists flocking to the Spanish island of Gran Canaria each Spring. 

As per usual, you can expect the streets of this beachside town to get packed with throngs of gay guys and girls from around Europe and the rest of the world. Taking place in and around the infamous Yumbo Center and Playa del Ingles, the popular duned-beach, Maspalomas Gay Pride is one of Gran Canaria’s biggest LGBTQ events, alongside Carnival and Circuit Gran Canaria.

Every year, the streets of Maspalomas are filled with ever growing crowds during the annual Maspalomas Gay Pride. The town hosts ten days of shows and parades with nearly 100.000 attendees looking to celebrate Maspalomas Gay Pride. Maspalomas gay pride was first held in 2002 in the southern part of the Gran Canaria island. 

Program of Maspalomas Gay Pride

In 2019, the 18th edition of Maspalomas Gay Pride will run from May 2-11. Around 100,000 partygoers attend Gay Pride Maspalomas, attracted by performances from international artists, pool parties, circuit-style events, boat trips and, of course, the extravaganza that is the street parade in Playa del Inglés. The main parade will kick off on May 11 at 2pm, and wind its way through the city streets with plenty of color.

Prior to the parade, Maspalomas will be host to loads of parties sure to entertain. Tuesday, May 7 will see the official Pride T-Dance party kick off at the Aqua Ocean Club, where DJs Sharon O`Love and Diva Mayday will keep the music pumping. Wednesday, May 8, will see the Wet & White Party return, and it will include a pool and Jacuzzi, and welcome popular Tel Aviv-based DJ Micky Friedmann.  

And because this sunny island enjoys warm weather all-year round, you can party during the night and recover on the beach - topping up your tan while you’re at it - during those sunny afternoons. Then you can get ready to party all over again!
