#PRIDE is in Riverside! Join us for a day of celebration, elevation, and reflection. You will enjoy performances by unique entertainers, dance to the beat of up-and-coming LGBTQIA+ performers, learn about LGBTQIA+ history, and enjoy the company of LGBTQIA+ oriented and friendly organizations and companies.
This is an all-ages FREE event. We have a youth zone dedicated for youth 17 and under.
Riverside LGBTQ+ Pride is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity, 100% volunteer-powered. We cannot succeed without our dedicated volunteers and the community's support.
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.
The festival will be at the historic Riverside Municipal Auditorium. Located in downtown Riverside. We're buying out the venue and so the entire space will be PRIDE!
More details will be released as we get closer to the event. Stay tune to this space for links to more details!
