Confirmation of entry
Receipt of registration does not necessarily confirm an entry. Cork Pride reserves the right to refuse the entry of any individual or entity that, in Cork Pride’s opinion does not reflect the celebration intended by the Parade.
Placement in the Parade
Priority placement is based on date and time completed applications are received with special consideration for community groups, older people, children and those with special needs. Placement in the Parade is at the sole discretion of Cork Pride; we will however try to accommodate requests for placement where possible.
Parade line up assignments will be distributed on the morning of the Parade during the steward safety meeting. It is essential that your stewards attend this meeting.
Commercial, franchise and third party sponsorship
Any third party sponsorship, display of logos of third party entities must be approved by Cork Pride prior to submission. Such permission, if granted, usually attract commercial entry fees and conditions. Please contact us prior to submission for more information.
Throwing/ handing items to the crowd
PLEASE NOTE: We require that you do not throw anything from your contingent or in any way encourage viewers to come onto the Parade Route. This presents a very serious safety issue as motorised vehicles comprise part of the parade. Deaths at such events have occurred in the past for this very reason. Volunteers may however walk alongside footpaths and HAND items to people - do not encourage viewers to come onto the street in any way.
The Cork Pride Festival Parade Entry Terms and Conditions.

Cork Pride reserves the right to remove any individual, group or contingent who is, in its sole opinion and discretion, a hindrance to the safety and progress of the Parade or who places participants or spectators in physical danger, for motor safety violations, unsafe or illegal conduct such as drugs, alcohol or participation inconsistent with the aims, goals and purposes of Cork Pride Parade. This includes the right to remove persons from any float or vehicular unit which it determines to be overcrowded to such an extent that the unit may break down or cause injury to participants.
