Pride, No Prejudice 

Just like a fine wine, the LGBTQA-friendly St. Louis PrideFest gets better year after year. The annual celebration of the St. Louis gay community opens with the ever-popular Pet Parade at noon on Saturday, June 28, at Morganford Road and Utah Street. The always-bodacious official PrideFest parade starts promptly at noon on Sunday, June 29, at the intersection of Gravois Avenue and South Grand Boulevard. Both parades are followed by the main festivities, which take place through 8 p.m. at Tower Grove Park (4256 Magnolia Avenue). The park is home base for the weekend, where you can sample the many offerings of delectable comestibles, enjoy the absolutely fab Pride Royalty Pageant, and delight in the musical stylings Jason & DeMarco, folk-indie rocker Tom Goss and rocking singer/songwriter Jen Foster. For more details on this year's PrideFest, including the extensive schedule of live entertainment, call 314-772-8888 or visit Admission is free, and coolers are welcome, but absolutely no outside liquor will be tolerated in Tower Grove Park.
