It’s all happening at The Prince this month. Food, festivals, fire relief and female power set us up for a month of frivolity. We celebrate our roots as Melbourne’s first LGBTIQ+ friendly venue as we prep for the Pride Parade and our prime pozzie for St Kilda Fest. Needless to say, Feb is huge for us, pop in whenever to enjoy the hive of activity.
1. MIDSUMMA PRIDE MARCH
Sunday 2nd February
The 25th Midsumma Pride March returns to Fitzroy St. Kicking off from 11am parade, pride and party come together once a year to celebrate solidarity in gender and sexual diversity. Join this spectacular act of unity as an ally or as a queer. Beginning with the much-loved pre-march procession by Dykes on Bikes followed by thousands of marchers led by Midsumma’s Indigenous Pride Float.
The Prince has the best spot on the route, celebrating all day at both Prince Public Bar and Prince Dining Room. Pop into Melbourne’s first openly LGBTIQ+ friendly venue (us) on this apt day.
