* Save the date: the Phoenix Pride Festival typically takes place the first weekend in April. *
The 39th Annual Phoenix Pride Festival in Phoenix is a two-day celebration designed to bring our diverse LGBTQ+ and allied communities together for a weekend of camaraderie and celebration of our past, present and future, while raising funds for the Phoenix Pride Community Programs and educating the public about the existence and continuing civil rights battle facing our community.
Each year, the Phoenix Pride Festival attracts over 40,000 attendees during the two-day celebration offering unique opportunities for marketing and exposure for businesses and organizations interested in creating relationships within the LGBTQ+ community.
The Phoenix Pride festival features over 150 entertainment performances on 6 stages and over 300 Exhibitors showcasing a huge variety of food options, shopping opportunities, and community resources. Headliners for 2019 will be announced in January. The festival brings a variety of food vendors, as well as an Arts Expo, Main, and Community Stages, KidSpace, VIP Experience, Erotic World, and Dance Pavilion. This year we will be adding a Latin Carnival Stage in conjunction with Club Papi. Combined with participation from government officials, services, private corporations, and celebrities, the Phoenix Pride Festival continues to raise positive awareness of the Phoenix metropolitan LGBTQ+ community.
