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

Denver's 2020 PrideFest is June 20–21, 2020. This year's PrideFest will be a virtual event, held exclusively online.

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.

Due to the spread of COVID-19, this year's PrideFest will be held exclusively online, but that won't stop The Mile High City from celebrating! Potential virtual activities at this year's PrideFest include:

  • Virtual Parade: The Center will ask community businesses and organizations to enter fun-filled videos that will be livestreamed as a “parade” with live commentary.
  • Virtual 5K: People will enter the 5K, run their race and submit their time independently. The Center will reward their efforts with a t-shirt and other prizes.
  • Virtual Entertainment: The Center is working to gather online entertainment from performers who were previously scheduled to perform live.
  • Virtual Dance Party: DJs from various clubs around town will present a dance party via Twitch.
  • Virtual Exhibitor Page: An online marketplace will allow the public to virtually browse a collection of exhibitors who will sell merchandise online.
  • Pride Decorating Contest: The Center will encourage the public to decorate their houses or apartment balconies for pride and share their photos online.
  • Virtual Pride Job Fair: Job seekers will be able to visit an online job board that will post jobs from LGBT-friendly employers.
