2022 Festival Registrations

Festival Registrations are open! Submit your idea, apply for funding through the Pride & Spark Empowerment Initiative or register your event below for 2022’s Auckland Pride Month!

What you need to know:

Auckland Pride is an open-access arts, cultural, and community Festival. We rely on our community to produce events for the Auckland Pride Festival, and do everything we can to support them. We can’t wait to kick off another month of queer celebrations across all of Auckland, and we’re looking forward to working with you to make it happen.

The below Festival Registrations form contains everything you need for next year’s Festival. It’s a suggestion box, a Pride & Spark Empowerment Initiative Application Form, as well as a Festival Registration Form. The forms are based on the level of support you need from Auckland Pride, whether that’s funding, or don’t need support at all. Production & Venue support from Proud Centres will be included soon, stay tuned.

The 2022 Festival will be themed around ’50 years of Pride in Auckland’ and our provocation to event organisers is to consider this theme, what it means to you and your event, and incorporate elements of our history into your event. More about this provocation can be found in the Festival Registration Information Pack, and we’ll have more to share when we launch in November.

Festival Registration Information:

Before filling out the Festival Registration form, please read the Festival Registration Information Pack.

The information pack has everything you need to know in it, including our 2022 provocation, venues, pricing, ticketing, key dates, accessibility, and more! It’s a go-to guide for organising an event in the 2022 Festival.
