Denver PrideFest 2018
Denver's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community throws an enormous party every summer with PrideFest in Civic Center Park. Produced by the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center of Colorado (The Center), Denver PrideFest is now the third largest pride festival, and seventh largest pride parade in the United States, drawing 375,000 guests annually. Denver PrideFest takes place annually in June in downtown Civic Center Park. PrideFest features the CoorsLight PrideFest Parade, a Dance Stage with DJs, a Latin Stage with cultural programming, and the Center Stage with live entertainment, and plenty of celebrating both days. The festival also features more than 250 vendor booths with arts, crafts, food and more. We provide a VIP area with food and drinks for sponsors and contributors to enjoy, and there’s also a family area, youth alley, and a transgender resource area. PrideFest also provides a $25 million dollar economic impact to the City of Denver annually, as reported in a 2009 survey conducted by The Center and Birchill Enterprises. The mission of Denver PrideFest is to create a fun, safe and empowering space to celebrate and promote the heritage and culture of the LGBT and allied community in Colorado.
