About PrideFest

Throughout the month of June, St Pete Pride will host 4 themed weeks to celebrate the LGBTQIA+ community while showcasing the best of St Pete. Each weekend, thousands of people will (safely) gather for signature events hosted in outdoor locations, while all month long, over a hundred participating St Pete restaurants, cultural institutions and retail partners will attract guests with events, discounts and Pride-friendly offerings. St. Pete Pride has worked diligently to design a creative and safe Pride with a twist with the goal of giving our LGBTQIA+ community the opportunity to gather, educate and celebrate while ensuring safety and wellness in the time of COVID-19. This year most events will be ticketed to enforce capacity regulations.
