Participation in the Pride Parade
23 May 2022 (*)
(*) The order of the line-up of entries will be decided through a raffle held on Monday, May 30th, at Gugg (Heumühlgasse 14, 1040 Vienna). All participants may draw their starting numbers themselves, which assigns their position in the parade. Therefore, we cannot influence the starting numbers. The drawn starting number cannot be exchanged for organisational reasons.
The Rainbow Parade is a public demonstration. There is no obligation to register for private marchers. If you want to participate in the parade as an official entry or plan to enter with a vehicle, you have to register.
You will be listed as an official entry and have the chance to be awarded the best entry. You will receive a sign with a name of your choice and in case of a motorised participation security vests for your entry’s securities.
No, private individuals or groups, clubs, organisations and companies can register to participate. It is important that a responsible person is named.
There are no limits to your creativity. The only exception: racist, sexist or other hurtful slogans will not be tolerated. The area used to display the parade slogan or one’s own slogan must amount to at least 25% of the total area used for textual or graphic display on the vehicle. The participants thus ensure that the character of a political demonstration is preserved.
There is no registration free. To cover the costs incurred (security forces, blocking measures, exceptional driving permission for trucks and trailers, etc.), the participants will be charged contributions. The amount of the contribution depends on the type of participation. In the case of motorised groups contribution towards expenses (if part of the LGBTIQ community, for entry type 2-3) or a solidarity contribution (if not part of the LGBTIQ community, entry types 1-3) must be made.
More detailed information can be found in the rules of entry; among other things: vehicles must not be more than 4 meters high in total. They must be secured during the entire parade with a sufficient number of wheelbase securities. The police will fix the maximum volume of sound systems.
You can find the contact details of some companies at Pride Parade > Participation > Equipment.
