The Pink Festival is an open-air summer diversity event held in Cambridge, England since 2003. The event is held on a Saturday in August. The event is open to the public, entry is free of charge. The event is independent from any council-run events.
The Pink Festival's inception in 2003 was under the name the Pink Picnic, with subsequent annual events held in 2004, 2005 and 2006 under the name Pink Festival. There was no event in 2007 due to lack of funding and resources. The events from 2003 to 2008 have been held on a Saturday in August at Cherry Hinton Hall in Cambridge.
The objective of the Pink Festival is to provide the only LGBT event in the East of England at which festival goers can celebrate the things that make us all different.
The Pink Festival is produced by team of unpaid volunteers throughout the year. The event is not intended to make any profit. Most of the available funds are used to produce the event, with a small percentage donated to a local LGBT network of charity organisations.
The Pink Festival is an open-air event with a number of marquees offering varied entertainment including live music, cabaret and comedy. Previous events have included a "Pink Games" arena for sporting activities.
