About Palm Springs Pride

Palm Springs Pride is a unique pride festival and the largest LGBTQ gathering in the Coachella Valley. The festival includes music stages, DJs, food vendors, and plenty of other entertainment options catered to all tastes. 

The theme for Gay Pride Palm Springs this year is Youth Power for Change, which highlights youth-led movement-building efforts that can help to shape public policy for generations. Greater Palm Springs Pride is committed to empowering the youth, and enabling them to be at the forefront of community-led events such as Pride. 

Program of Palm Springs Pride

This year, Palm Springs Pride will take place over four days, from November 1 to 4. The Pride Parade is scheduled for November 4, and kicks off at 10am at Palm Canyon Drive. It will then proceed down the drive until it reaches the main entrance of the Pride Festival at Museum Way.

Pride Festival is a two-day free festival which will take place from November 3 to 4, and will be held on Palm Canyon Drive. In keeping with the theme of this year’s Palm Springs Gay Pride, the festival line-up will include a mix of young and diverse artists, ranging from DJs and dancers, to singers, and even comedians. Top acts include LA-based electronic music artist and activist, Madame Ghandi, along with a first-time appearance by UK-based multi-platinum artist and songwriter, DYSON.  

As well as the Pride Festival and Parade, a series of other pride-related events will be taking place throughout the city, including a Block Party on Arenas Road on November 3, and several pool parties which will be hosted by different local venues. If you want to do Pride the right way this November, you need to get yourself to Gay Pride Palm Springs pronto.
