This is a past event.


When: Sat., June 23, 11 a.m.-7 p.m. 2018
Price: $5 suggested donation
Despite a decade of real progress for the LGBTQ community, this past year hasn't been great. We have an anti-gay vice president and a new, equally anti-gay governor. Those are just two of the many reasons why PrideFest matters in 2018. The community needs to stand as one to remind the homophobes that we're here and we're queer — even as allies need to stand up to say we love them for it. PrideFest returns to Soldiers Memorial Park (Fourteenth and Chestnut streets; this weekend, with a special, under-25 area for the youngsters and performances by Charis, the Gateway Men's Chorus, dance-pop mastermind Bonnie McKee (co-writer of most of Katy Perry's hits), '90s EDM hit machine La Bouche, with R&B singer Mýa headlining. The festival grounds are open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. (Saturday June 23 and 24). The parade starts at noon Sunday. Admission to the festival is free, but if you can afford a donation, $5 is the suggested amount.
