For 42 years, Phoenix Pride has been organizing marches, rallies, parades, entertainment and education and outreach events to celebrate the Phoenix LGBTQ+ community. In 2021, over 300 corporations, local business, and organizations supported the 40th Annual Phoenix Pride Festival in Phoenix.
This year’s Phoenix Pride Festival will continue to be a two day celebration designed to bring our diverse LGBTQ+ and allied communities together for a weekend of camaraderie and celebration of our past, present and future, while raising funds for the Phoenix Pride Community Programs and educating the public about the existence and continuing civil rights battle facing our community. The Phoenix Pride Festival attracts over 55,000 attendees during the two-day celebration offering unique opportunities for marketing and exposure for businesses and organizations interested in creating relationships within the LGBTQ+ community.
The Phoenix Pride festival features over 150 entertainment performances on 7 stages and over 300 Exhibitors showcasing a huge variety of food options, shopping opportunities, and community resources. The festival brings a variety of food vendors, as well as an Arts Expo, Main, and Community Stages, KidSpace, VIP Experience, Erotic World, Dance Pavilion, and the Fiesta Caliente Latin Stage presented by Tito’s Handmade Vodka and produced by Club Papi. Combined with participation from government officials, services, private corporations, and celebrities, the Phoenix Pride Festival continues to raise positive awareness of the Phoenix metropolitan LGBTQ+ community.
