Riverside’s Inland Empire Pride Festival & Parade

September 4 All day

Parade from 9am

Festival from 10am-10pm

All information below subject to change.


The festival will have a “block party” feel – with attention to night time atmosphere. Vendors will include food, arts and crafts, and a selection of non-handmade merchandise. A variety of entertainment will grace up to two stages, and street performers will have designated areas to perform. Art installations will include both festival-produced exhibits and locally curated artists.

Celebrate, Educate, Commemorate, & Elevate

The mission of the festival will be to give our communities a safe and fully inclusive place to celebrate their true selves, educate about LGBTQ+ issues and history, commemorate those who came before us and who have sacrificed for progress, and illuminate our current community to increase visibility and shine a light on those making change.


We have applied for special event permit in downtown Riverside, surrounding the Main Street Plaza between Market Street and Orange.
