About

In 2019, Svalbard had it`s first Pride Festival. The world's northernmost Pride parade was a great success, and now Pride is held annually in Longyearbyen. The festival is family-oriented, and helps to show acceptance and diversity in one of the world's northernmost communities. We also want to show the many thousands of tourists who visit us every year, that Longyearbyen is an open destination for visitors with LGBTQ + affiliation.

The festival is held over 3 days, Friday to Sunday. Friday is aimed at youth, and activities are arranged in collaboration with the local youth club. On Saturday, there are activities for children in the library, and the cinema hall, before the parade itself kicks off.

The Pride parade starts at Svalbardhallen at 17:00, and ends at Polarhotellet. There will be speeches, and music, before the party continues in Barentz Gastropub. On Sunday, there is a free cinema for everyone under the auspices of Longyearbyen Pride.

We welcome all hearts to Longyearbyen Pride!
