Frequently Asked Questions

Our answers to the most frequently asked questions about EuroPride Valletta 2023, Malta 7-17 September 2023.

What is EuroPride?

EuroPride is a European event dedicated to the LGBTIQ+ community. The event is hosted by a different European city each year, featuring a parade, artistic and human rights events across different venues. The host city is usually chosen for the presence of a strong LGBTIQ+ community and an established LGBTIQ+ event.

The first EuroPride was celebrated in London in 1992, with 100,000 participants. The most well-attended EuroPride so far is Madrid 2007, with 2,500,000 people.

You can find further information on the EPOA - European Pride Organisers Association website.

Can I bring my pet to EuroPride Valletta 2023?

There are no restrictions. However, it’s up to you to decide whether your pet is ready to join a big crowd.


Before taking your pet along with you, please consider whether they’re happy to meet lots of humans or march in a parade. During the EuroPride events there will surely be a lot of new smells and sounds that may be unpleasant for your pet friend.


So, our advice is to consider your pet’s disposition — extroverted and friendly or shy and methodical? —, the type of events you’re planning to attend and the temperatures in Malta.


If your pet is a trained assistance dog, there are no restrictions whatsoever. For further information, please visit the Accessibility page.
