13 people attending
12 places left
Come join us as Oxford celebrates its 20th Anniversary Pride!
To help Oxford celebrate this amazing milestone Outdoorlads is one of the Anniversary Supporters. So, whether you like climbing, bouldering, hostelling, cycling, camping, canoeing or day walks grab your OutdoorLads RED T-shirt and come join in the fun of the parade and help show Oxford that OutdoorLads does #GetOutMore!
Oxford is beautiful city and easily accessible so why not make a mini break of it and join us for a variety of events over the weekend!
After the parade
Once we have made our journey through the streets of Oxford, I suggest we end the parade with a drink at the Jolly Farmer/Paradise Street area, which is just a short walk from the stage areas. Feel free to join us there before enjoying the rest of Oxford Pride
Oxford Pride is free, there will be a main stage (in the Castle Quarter) and a Variety Stage & Community area in the Westgate Centre, you are free to enjoy the rest of pride (Event Map) or just enjoy the beautiful city that is Oxford.
Main Stage - Castle Quarter Stage (who doesn't love a Spice Girls tribute act?)
Variety Stage - Variety Stage - Westgate Centre

Is this your first ODL event?
Attending your first event with OutdoorLads might feel daunting. What will happen, who will be there, and what can you expect? We know that new members in particular like to know in advance more about what an OutdoorLads event will be like.
If this is your first ODL event, you should check out the information designed specifically for you on the My First Event page on the ODL website. If you have any other questions you can send a message to the leader

IMPORTANT! - Participation Statement
You MUST complete a Participation Statement, in addition to booking your event space before attending an OutdoorLads event. You only need to complete this Participation Statement once, not for each event you attend.
What to bring
Wear your red ODL t'shirt, shorts and footwear comfortable to walk in. Rainbow face paints always go down well. ODL and/or rainbow flags would also be great.
If you don't have a red ODL shirt then the office can send one out for £10 inc P&P. Alternatively you can ask on the messages to see if someone can loan you one OR come in any outdoor clothing, preferably with a red top.
Outdoor props are always welcome (e.g. climbing racks & helmets, walking poles, kayak paddles etc) though ensure you're happy to carry them for the entire parade and consider what you'll do with them afterwards!
Food & drink
Plenty of options available at the event.
