PrideFest is back, and for the first time since the pandemic began, the festival will offer fully in-person programming.

The festival will take over Civic Center Park June 25 and 26, offering live performances, hundreds of exhibitors and dozens of food and beverage vendors. The event will kick off with the annual Pride 5K, and on Sunday, the annual Coors Light PrideFest Parade will take place across 14 blocks of Colfax Avenue, from Cheesman Park to Civic Center.

PrideFest headliners include Australian pop artist Betty Who; RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars fan favorite Kylie Sonique Love; singer, producer and DJ Cazwell; local drag performer, fine artist and rapper Yvie Oddly; and RuPaul’s Drag Race star Silky Nutmeg Ganache.

As always, the event is presented by The Center on Colfax, a nonprofit dedicated to providing programs and services for the LGBTQ community in Colorado. Every year, PrideFest draws hundreds of thousands of visitors from Colorado and beyond to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Stonewall. This year marks a return to fully in person programming after the 2020 PrideFest went fully virtual, and last year’s event took a hybrid approach. 

More information about 2022 PrideFest events can be found on The Center’s website.
