For over 30 years, Phoenix Pride has been organizing marches, rallies, parades, entertainment and education events to celebrate the Phoenix LGBTQ community. In 2013, nearly 50 corporations, local business, and organizations sponsored the 33rd Annual Phoenix Pride Festival in Phoenix.
This year’s 34th Annual Phoenix Pride Festival is a two day celebration designed to bring our diverse LGBTQ and allied communities together for a weekend of camaraderie and celebration of our past, present and future while raising funds for the Phoenix Pride Community Programs while educating the public about the existence and continuing civil rights battle facing our community. The Phoenix Pride Festival attracts over 30,000 attendees during the two day celebration offering unique opportunities for marketing and exposure for businesses and organizations interested in creating relationships within the LGBTQ community.
The Phoenix Pride festival features over 150 entertainment performances on 5 stages. Headliners for 2013 were Australian Pop-Rock Sensation, The Veronicas and breakthrough duo, Karmin. The festival brings a variety of food vendors, as well as an Arts Expo, Health & Wellness Pavilion, KidSpace, YouthZone, Sway Events VIP Experience, an Erotic World and Dance Pavilions. Combined with participation from government officials, services, private corporations and celebrities, the Phoenix Pride Festival continues to raise positive awareness of the metro-Phoenix LGBTQ community.
