The LBGTQ community is a vital part of the social fabric of Grand Rapids. Each June, the city celebrates LGBTQ residents and their contributions with a fun and fabulous Pride Festival – complete with live music, dance, food & drink, and more. All are invited to join in the fun!
From local drag divas to national headliners like En Vogue and Mýa, the festival presents top-caliber entertainment even as it educates LBGTQers and straight allies about supportive local resources. Befitting Grand Rapids’ reputation as a family-friendly city, it also includes a family fun zone with kid-friendly activities and adventures.
Additional pride-related events are typically held in the week leading up to the festival. Check the Festival’s Facebook pageOpens in New Window for the most current schedule.
