Pride of the Déise is a not-for -profit, volunteer led community organisation based in Waterford City.

A celebration of Waterford’s inclusion and diversity, Pride of the Déise promotes Waterford City as a safe place for everyone. A mixture of speakers, workshops and performances culminates in a Pride festival that everyone can be proud of and benefit from. Our third annual event takes place this June bank holiday 2022.

Following on from the success of previous year’s online festivals, we are now looking forward to bringing a programme of in person events to the heart of Waterford City this year. Keep an eye on this site or our social media pages for updates.


Our Annual General Meeting took place in Garter Lane Arts Centre, 5 O’Connell Street, Waterford on the 23rd of February 2022. Overview and annual reports can be downloaded here.
