About Miami Beach Gay Pride

Gay Miami has some of the best beaches in the world, so it makes perfect sense that the city’s celebration of LGBTQ life would be held right there, in front of the sea. This incredible beach pride takes place every year since 2008, and by the sound of things we can look forward to a jam-packed program of fun in the sun. Miami Pride has grown healthily into the largest event of the year for the city, attracting more than 145,000 party revelers. 

Every you can expect the usual Miami Beach Gay Pride activities: the annual parade and festival - which features community booths and expo areas - live music and entertainment, food and drink vendors and family-friendly play areas. Previous big-name performers including Iggy Azealea and Gloria Estefan indicate that the pride's  installment is always guaranteed to be big.   

Program of Miami Beach Gay Pride

On Saturday and Sunday, April 6-7 Miami Beach Gay Pride will feature its iconic Pride Festival, which will feature two stages welcoming world-class DJs, speakers, and entertainers. As well as an impressive line-up of entertainment, the Miami Gay Beach Pride Festival will offer refreshments and over 120 community booths (and lots of guys making a splash in their Speedos!).     

The main parade kicks off at midday on Sunday April 7, 2019. The whole Art Deco district of Ocean Drive will be shut to traffic, allowing the floats to pass and the crowds to gather and celebrate! The parade concludes at the Miami Beach Pride Festival and Expo area. To avoid missing out on a decent viewing spot, it's recommended to arrive early. The best entry of Miami Gay Beach Pride will also be awarded according to the person who best epitomizes the spirit of pride. This will be the seventh time the best entry award will be taking place, and it guarantees plenty of fun - and not just for the winner!

A combination of great activities and beautiful weather - April temperatures in Miami can hit up to 28C - means the LGBTQ community from around the world are flocking in ever-increasing numbers to Florida for Miami Pride. In 2018 alone, Miami Gay Beach Pride welcomed a total of 145,000 people from all walks of life, making it a truly momentous event in Miami for the year. So, will we be seeing you there this year? Fun will be a given!
