June 15-16, 2019
Denver PrideFest is the largest celebration of LGBTQ pride in the Rocky Mountain region, featuring live entertainment on 3 stages, 250+ exhibitors, an array of food and beverage vendors, the Coors Light Denver Pride Parade, and the Pride 5K race.
Festival Hours: Saturday, June 15 from 11:00am-7:00pm & Sunday, June 16 10:00am-6:00pm
Denver PrideFest offers the best in LGBTQ live entertainment and dance! With amazing talent performing on 3 stages located throughout the festival, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. National acts share the Center Stage line-up with side-splitting local drag stand-outs, and joyous crowds are moved to dance by everything from the traditional cultural performances on the U.S. Bank Latin Stage some of today’s best DJs spinning in Smirnoff Dance World.
No two acts are alike at Denver PrideFest!
Denver PrideFest is proud to offer a free festival experience designed to bring the entire LGBTQ community together in celebration and strength. Interactive games and fun, age-appropriate performances are offered in the Walmart Family Area (for young children with parents or caretakers) and Youth Alley (for youth ages 11-21). The AARP SAGE of the Rockies Resource Area offers a relaxing respite from the hustle and bustle of the festival, while the Trans Resource Area builds connections among the community.
At Denver PrideFest, we’re all family!
Annual Art Installation
A Pride Collaboration Between The Center on Colfax & Lonnie Hanzon
Local Denver-based artist, Lonnie Hanzon, started in the performing arts and fashion design, but is now known around the world for creating major public works of art, immersive entertainment projects, visual merchandising and fine art commissions.
Stonewall 50: Progress and Reflection is the fifth installment of significant public artworks, which include Equality Cake (2015), The Orlando Massacre Memorial (2016), The Shrine to Humanity (2017), and Equal Threshold (2018). These large artworks have helped to amplify the image and message of Denver Pridefest. Stonewall 50: Progress and Reflection is a temporal installation that will examine and display significant moments in history and the legacy of the Stonewall riots.
