Pride in Bilbao Bizkaia
Every year we celebrate PRIDE (Harro), a global festival with a wide range of acts and events for all tastes in which anybody can join in: diversity and equality are values that you can see reflected in each one of the scheduled activities, which create a space of inclusion and respect for everybody. Furthermore, these celebrations are not only important for the LGTBIQ+ collective, but they are also an opportunity for demonstrating the capacity of Bilbao Bizkaia to organise large-scale events.
PRIDE is a moment to celebrate our identity and feel proud of who we are and Bilbao Bizkaia celebrates it in an open, festive, welcoming and inclusive way.
Bilbao Bizkaia a region that celebrates pride.
In Bilbao Bizkaia, pride is something felt in every corner, that is why we attract more visitors every year who feel welcomed by our people. In this regard, Bilbao Bizkaia Harro is an essential event in the European circuit that is held at the end of June in different areas of the region, and offers a wide variety of activities and events.
We are proud to be a destination that welcomes and respects everybody, without concern for their sexual orientation or gender identity. That’s why, during Bilbao Bizkaia Harro, our streets are full of colour, music and joy to celebrate the pride in being who we are and to love as we wish.
