Celebrating Pride in the Mid-South Since 2003
The annual Mid-South Pride Festival is the single largest gathering for the LGBT community and its allies in the Mid-South. It attracts more than 8,000 attendees and includes entertainment featuring musicians, bands, speakers, and dance performances. The Festival features more than 80 vendor and informational booths, great food, and of course, the Pride Parade rolling down Historic Beale Street. Events at the Mid-South Pride Festival and Parade are fun-filled and family friendly. We welcome everyone to be a part of this grand celebration.
