Navan Pride 2023 FeedBACK survey
IMPORTANT PARADE ANNOUNCEMENT
Due to an expected increased volume of attendees in our parade and unexpected roadworks at the Solstice, we have been advised to start the parade from the Fair Green in Navan, opposite St Mary’s Church. Please now gather at the Fair Green from 1.30pm on Saturday, setting off at 2pm. The parade will also finish at the Fair Green.
Sorry for any inconvenience caused by this late change.

Ebay supporting Navan Pride
Navan Pride is excited to announce that eBay, a champion of diversity, equity and inclusion, and a company that believes in creating opportunities for everyone to grow and thrive, is to be the official sponsor of our first ever parade on July 1st.
eBay stands together with the Navan community and their support will go towards insurance, performers, flags and materials, making the parade possible and hopefully an event to remember!

Navan Pride have become aware of a video of an attack on a local Navan student circulating online. There is speculation that this was a homophobic attack. While this is unconfirmed, we strongly stand against this type of behaviour and ask that our followers do not share this video online.
Violent attacks on members of the LGBTQ+ community are still happening, not just across this country but within our own town. This is why Navan Pride is so important and why we need your support.
