Find out how you or your group can be a part the Parade.
The Auckland Rainbow Parade is an uplifting event bringing a carnival-style atmosphere to Ponsonby Road with impressive, large-scale un-motorised floats. Participants and onlookers can expect a fun day of rainbow families, dancing, performance, plenty of music and key messaging from the community.
Aotearoa New Zealand’s rainbow communities comprise of many diverse groups and individuals. The objective of the parade is to provide a safe place for rainbow communities to have a voice, celebrate acceptance, and demonstrate the value of diversity and inclusion.
Each parade group will be assigned a specific starting location within the mustering area, depending on the order you appear in the parade.
We’re a newly formed not-for-profit organisation with a mission to bring people together to celebrate the history, courage and diversity of our community.
