Chicago Pride Fest is a 2-day festival that leads up to the Chicago Pride Parade with up to 100,000 participants expected, celebrating LGBTQ+ life, culture and community and honouring the 50th anniversary of Stonewall.
The Parade will take place from Broadway & Montrose, stretching over a 4-mile route with over 150 entries. Chicago is expecting crowds of over one million.
The street festival will feature a range of performers, including Betty Who and Pabllo Vittar. There’ll be four stages, hundreds of arts & crafts vendors, drag shows and a contest offering the chance to sing before 40,000 peeps at Chicago’s baseball park. The pride march begins at 12:00, June 30th, at Boystown on Halsted and Broadway, between Montrose and Diversey.
Boystown in Chicago boasts one of the world’s finest gay villages. Check out the LGBT+ Legacy Walk and see hundreds of installations and placards. When you’re ready to party there are many great places to go – don’t miss the late night parties at Hydrate.
