Launched from Victoria Square in Birmingham's city centre at 12 noon on Saturday 2nd June 2012, the Carnival Parade route will be our best and most visible procession through the city ever!
This year it will wind its way down Colmore Row, and include other streets like Bull Street, Temple Street, Colmore Row and New Street, before finishing right in the heart of the Gay Village area for festival-goers to continue the celebrations.
The theme this year is celebrating the 'It Gets Better' campaign to help young people from the LGBT and prevent suicides. The message will be evident in the parade, which will see hundreds of people making their way through the streets on foot, alongside a large number of superbly decorated motorised trucks.
Entries to the Carnival Parade are now closed, we look forward to seeing you at Victoria Square at 12noon.
We gratefully acknowledge those Birmingham gay venues and their customers who have been raising money through bucket collections and organising fundraisers to help underwrite the ever-increasing infrastructure costs associated with this year's Carnival Parade.
