A lesbian festival, the Angertorstraβenfest, will mark the official opening of the 2014 Munich Christopher Street Day on Saturday, 5th of July. The main events take place on Saturday, 13th of July. These include a CSD-Politparade through Munich’s streets and the RathausClubbing (when a stage is set up in front of Munich’s city hall). A street festival starts on the 13th and concludes the next day.
(More details of specific events yet to be confirmed, but here's how the festival has played out in recent years):
Celebrations start at 11.30am on Saturday with a welcoming ceremony at Marienplatz. There are political speeches and comedy and DJ acts continue into the evening.
There’s also parade around Munich’s Old Town starting from Marienplatz at 12pm. The parade includes over 40 floats and stretches over 1km. It’s great fun to watch and there’s a hugely festive atmosphere.
On Saturday night there’s clubbing inside Munich’s Neues Rathaus, the City Hall on Marienplatz. On Sunday at 5pm there’s a ridiculous “high-heels race” where 10 participants attempt to outrun each other along with handbag throwing and ladder climbing competitions.
Another focal point is Rindermarkt, a square 5min walk south of Marienplatz. Munich and international DJs mix it up on an outdoor stage on both Saturday and Sunday from midday to midnight.
