PrideFest St. Louis 2017

Gay pride flag waving in the wind.One of our favorite events of the year is coming up soon. We can’t wait for this June to come around so we can kick off PrideFest 2017. Last year, a quarter of a million people attended Pride St. Louis making it the biggest and best ever!

This year, PrideFest is taking over St. Louis June 23rd-25th, 2017, at Soldiers Memorial Park in Downtown St. Louis. This year’s theme is “Community Proud.” St. Louis was recently ranked #4 on a list of most gay-friendly cities, and we are incredibly proud to be a part of this loving, inclusive community.

During PrideFest, the whole weekend will be packed with entertainment (to be announced soon!) and activities starting at 2 pm on Friday, June 23. Plus, the action-packed, colorful parade starts on Sunday, June 25 at 12 pm.

While PrideFest is free, there is a suggested donation of $5 per person to help cover costs of the parade, as well as fund scholarships and support the LGBTQIA+ community in St. Louis.

Looking for more? Besides attending all the festivities, you can register your group to walk in the parade! If you do, get creative. Your group could win an award for Best Overall, Best Costumes, Best Walking Entry, Best Social Commentary, Best Float, or Judges’ Choice Honorable Mention. Also, you can take the next step and become a vendor or sponsor. Register now.

On top of all the incredible things PrideFest has to offer, you can also book the His & His or Hers & Hers package with us to make it an absolutely unforgettable weekend. When you book this package, you’ll be staying in Superior Room with one king or two queen beds, plus:
