Dartford Pride Set to Return for Its Third Year in 2024 with Bigger and Better Festivities

Dartford Pride is set to make a triumphant return to the town for its third year in July 2024.

The popular event, which has drawn in crowds of hundreds in the past, promises to be even bigger and better this year with live music and entertainment.

Organizers have officially announced that Dartford Pride will be back in action, with the Orchard Theatre once again serving as the host venue in partnership with Dartford Borough Council. The main festivities are scheduled for Saturday, July 6.

Since its debut in 2021, Dartford Pride has been a hit with the community, offering free entertainment from drag artists, bands, and dancers in the town center. The event also featured ticketed tribute nights at the nearby theater.

Last year’s lineup included performances from drag queen River Medway, who rose to fame on the third season of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK, as well as impersonators of popular artists such as Cher, Ariana Grande, and Taylor Swift.

Attendees were also treated to a talent show, food stalls, face painting, dance workshops by Strictly’s Graziano Di Prima, and performances by West End singers from hit shows like Wicked, Six, and Mamma Mia.

While this year’s entertainment has yet to be announced, the Dartford Pride Facebook page promises that updates will be shared in the coming months.

Pride month officially takes place in June, but events are typically held throughout the summer. The celebrations trace back to the Stonewall riots, a series of protests that occurred in America in June 1969.

Since then, communities around the world have come together every year to celebrate love, acceptance, and support for LGBTQ+ rights. Keep an eye out for more details on Dartford Pride 2024 and mark your calendars for an unforgettable day of love and pride in the town of Dartford.
