Ginger Pride is alive and well in Melbourne town, with another festival set for 29 April 2017 to celebrate all things redhead!

Yes that's right folks; Ginger Pride is an event to celebrate gingers and redheads. Last year, the first Ginger Pride Rally saw 1,000 redheaded Melburnians gather for one fun-filled day to celebrate who they are.



This year's Ginger Pride Rally will kick off at 11.00am (registration opens 9.30am) on 29 April 2017, at Melbourne's iconic Federation Square.

The event will see a collaboration of redheads and ginger supporters unite, armed with banners and flags, to march the streets of Melbourne in celebration of their uniqueness.



The event will also see games such as 'Ginger Beer Pong’, and a kid’s ginger activity zone.

Melbourne band The Vanns will be back again this year to entertain the crowds, with Luize Scott and X Factor standouts Brentwood also joining the line-up. And for all the single redheads out there, Singles Events Melbourne will be playing coppertop Cupid with rounds of Ginger Speed Dating.

Buderim Ginger CEO, Roger Masters says, “We were blown away by the incredible turnout to the 2016 Ginger Pride Rally, and are so excited to continue this new tradition and provide a day of much-needed recognition for Australia’s gingers. This year will be even gingerier than last, with a range of new additions and activities for every attendee to enjoy.”

The official charity partner of this year's Ginger Pride Rally will be The Alannah & Madeline Foundation. 50% of funds raised from merchandise sales from the day will be donated to the foundation, a charity that advocates for the safety of children, cares for children who have experienced serious violence and works to reduce the incidence of bullying, cyber bullying.

The Foundation will also be hosting ‘Kids Zone’ at the event, which will provide interactive and entertaining activities for children, including face painting and balloon sculpting.

The festival will also be supported again by The Red and Nearly Ginger Association (R.A.N.G.A), which exists as the peak special interest body for Ginger issues.
