About Phoenix Gay Pride

Phoenix Pride aims to promote unity, visibility and self-esteem among the LGBTQ community in Phoenix and Arizona. Originally founded in 1981 with the hope of bringing unity and visibility to the community, Phoenix Gay Pride has flourished into an annual LGBTQ celebration that draws thousands of pride enthusiasts from the community. The Phoenix Pride Festival includes entertainment, arts, KidsSpace, Erotic World and of course the Pride Parade. One highlight is the pageant, where a Miss and Mr Phoenix Pride will be crowned! This takes usually place a little earlier than the main Phoenix Pride.

The annual Phoenix Pride was first launched in 1981, so with almost 40 years of experience, we're sure this festival will be able to show you a good time. For two fun-filled days, you can look forward to lively celebrations throughout the city that are set to attract over 40,000 pride enthusiasts. 

Program of Phoenix Gay Pride

One of the main highlights of Phoenix Pride is the two-day festival, which will be taking place this year on Saturday and Sunday, April 6-7. During the Phoenix Pride Festival, you can look forward to 150 performances on six different stages in the Steele Indian School Park.

The jam-packed program features local artists, pop performers, jazz and acoustic music, and even adult-oriented artists on the specifically-themed Erotic World Stage. On Saturday, the main stage will welcome popstar, JoJo, as well as American Idol's Ada Vox. In conjunction with Club Papi, there will also be a Latin Carnival Stage. Note however that this is not a free event, so be sure to grab your tickets early to avoid missing out on all the fun.   

The Phoenix Gay Pride Parade itself will kick on the Sunday, April 7 at 10am from 3rd Street and Thomas. It is expected to welcome roughly 2,000 participants taking to colorful vehicles and floats, and a whole heap of spectators on top. There will also be a host of Grand Marshals taking part in all the revelry. After a procession of music, color, dancing, and fun, the Parade will wrap up at 3rd Street and Indian School. With all this on offer, you'd be foolish not to miss out on Phoenix Pride 2019, fun is guaranteed.
