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 9,000 attendees and includes entertainment featuring musicians, bands, speakers, and dance performances. The Festival showcases more than 125 vendor and informational booths, great food, and of course, the Pride Parade rolling down Historic Beale Street. Events at the Festival and Parade are family friendly and packed full of fun.
This year, we are expanding the annual 1-day festival into a 3-day grand celebration! With all the new things see and do, we decided to give our signature event a new name. Mid-South Pride brings you a new Pride experience at the all-new MEMPHIS PRIDE FEST!
