Isle of Wight Camp & Pride festival 2022
Join in the fun on the glorious island and celebrate Pride, fighting for LGBT rights across the globe.
The Isle of Wight needs our support on Saturday 16th July.
After us making a huge impression in the parade over the years this is now becoming an ODL favourite; not only to walk within the the parade will finish next to a Community Village, which will be alongside an afternoon and evening of seafront entertainment..
Make a weekend of it: Friday 15th - Sunday 17th July
This year why not make a whole weekend of it and join us on Friday early evening for a social in Shanklin, followed by Saturday Pride and beach party. .
I would suggest to camp at Kite Hill farm camp site near to Ryde.
Also, there are plenty of B&B’s within Ryde and surrounding areas.
The pride event will be a social event, wearing our Red T-Shirts, giving out ODL Flyers
