Denver's LGBTQ community throws an enormous party every summer with PrideFest.

Denver's 2021 PrideFest is June 26-27, 2021!

Recognized as one of the top 10 Pride events in the country, Denver PrideFest is a celebration of community and culture that is welcoming, inclusive and fun to all attendees, regardless of sexual orientation. The free, two-day festival gets bigger every year and is hosted by The Center on Colfax. The festival, which promotes the heritage and culture of the LGBTQ+ community of Colorado, typically draws more than 450,000 attendees over two days, making it the largest Pride event in the Rocky Mountain Region!

This year, PrideFest is shifting to the fourth weekend of June to avoid conflicting with other large cultural celebrations, including Denver’s Juneteenth Music Festival. Officials at The Center are working with Juneteenth organizers to help expand the annual celebration, which commemorates the end of slavery in the United States in 1865. Eventually, the two organizations would like to have a presence at the other’s event to broaden their appeal and potential audience.

Stay tuned for more details on all the events and festivities for 2021!
