Pride is on show at Viaduct Harbour with a vibrant Rainbow Week

With all shades of colour shining out in Rainbow Week, Viaduct Harbour has joined forces with Rainbow Pride to bring us these seven days of fun-filled festivities and epic parties. The entire precinct will be illuminated with fairy lights that boast every colour of the rainbow and an animated PRIDE light show, designed by the one and only, Angus Muir, every half hour from 7-11pm each night throughout the week. You will definitely want to be somewhere over this rainbow.   

Celebrations kick off on 17th of February.  But on Saturday night, there’s an especially vivid Viaduct Yacht Club’s Outrageous Disco, hosted by the iconic Anita Wigl’it from Caluzzi, Auckland’s festive Drag Queen bar. It will be a flamboyant affair of absolute fabulousness.

Viaduct Yacht Club invites guests to dress to impress and to get among the live music and entertainment in a boogie wonderland of dance and outrageous outfits. The very limited tickets are selling fast, so if you love the idea of joyful celebration, we suggest you get in as quickly as possible. It’s a nice touch that 10% of proceeds contribute to the Rainbow Pride Auckland community — click here to buy tickets.

The following day, Soul Bar & Bistro will be concluding the week with the grandest of finales, Pride Punch. Although the tickets to this soirée have already sold out, Soul is extending their invite from 3pm, for everyone to join the dance floor and boogie to the beats that will be provided by DJ Peter Urlich and surprise special guests.
