Palm Springs is a welcoming and affirming destination for the LGBTQ community which holds something for everyone. Celebrate the diversity of Palm Springs by planning your vacation getaway during Palm Springs Pride! Palm Springs Pride began in 1986 as a small variety show at the Riviera Resort showcasing local entertainers. Since then, Palm Springs Pride has become Southern California's premier celebration for LGBTQ unity, attracting 125,000 visitors from around the globe each year. 

Palm Springs Pride Festival 

The Palm Springs Pride Festival, held in downtown Palm Springs from November 1-4, is the largest LGBTQ celebration in the Coachella Valley. The theme of this year's Greater Palm Springs Pride is Youth Power for Change. Pride season kicks off on Friday, November 2nd in downtown Palm Springs. Celebrate underneath the stars with the free Stonewall Equality Concert and Spirit of Stonewall Street Party at the U.S. Bank Stage on Arenas Road. The celebration continues on Saturday, November 3rd at 11 am at the free two-day Pride Festival, which features a wide array of musicians, artists, entertainers, and vendors selling beautiful jewelry and crafts. After the daytime celebrations, don't forget to dance the night away at the free Arenas Road block party, with a night of pop, drag, and DJ performances.  

Fun for Everyone

Pride offers something for everyone. Athletes can support the community at the Palm Springs Pride Run and Walk 5K. All proceeds benefit the LGBTQ Community Center of the Desert. Queer women, lesbians, and their allies can join in the free 4th Annual Dyke March and rally at Frances Stevens Park. Have you been dreaming of getting married in Palm Springs? All Couples Nuptials can officiate your dream desert wedding while you're surrounded by thousands of friends and allies at Pride. Music lovers can spend an evening at ENCORE: A Celebration of American Idols at Zelda's. And these are just a few of the Pride events on offer!
