This year, along with outstanding entertainment and lots of dancing, we’ll be celebrating all forms of love in St. Louis with a late-night lantern release. Also new this year, when you purchase a PROMO VIP Experience ticket we will donate $25 to PROMO Missouri, a statewide LGBT advocacy organization. 

2/ PrideFest Budlight Main Stage: This year, Pride St. Louis brings us a diverse lineup of national, regional and local entertainers. In the Downtown location, new this year, the entertainment will be on and off the stages,  incorporated throughout the festival grounds. The Bud Light Main Stage will feature diverse entertainment on Saturday, June 28, from 12:30pm to 9:30pm. On Sunday, June 29, the stage hours will be 1:00pm to 7:30pm. Artists include MKTO, Betty Who, Cazwell, Alex Newell from “Glee,” God Des & She, Eric Himan Band and much more. Emcees on the Bud Light Stage include activist and comedian Sampson McCormick, Fortune Feimster from Chelsea Lately, Manila Luzon from “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” and Michelle McCausland.

3/ PrideFest Pride Parade: The annual parade runs in conjunction with PrideFest and to commemorate the anniversary of the Stonewall Riots in New York City and is the highlight of PrideFest weekend for many parade attendees and festival-goers. This year, the parade takes place on Sunday, June 29 at 11am. Thousands of people will descend on Downtown St. Louis to watch the second biggest parade of the year. It will showcase the creative talents of hundreds of LGBT friendly-businesses, non-profit organizations and community groups to spread their message to all who attend.
