For more than 40 years, Capital City Pride’s Pride Fest weekend has been an event that we share with our community, our friends, and our families. We have an action-packed weekend planned to celebrate our fantastic culture and successes that have been achieved throughout the last four decades. 


With more than 30,000 in attendance in 2019, our Pride Fest Street Festival was one of our biggest yet! The board of directors had to make the tough decision in 2020 to cancel an in-person celebration due to COVID-19 but our community showed how resilient we are with over 100k reached and almost 30k people engaged through our online Virtual Pride Month. 


This year, we plan to make it even larger with headline performances, a Pet Parade, Pride Fun Run, and so much more!
