Be a part of Pride weekend Cincinnati to honor the LGBTQ+ community’s love, hope, and diversity—and of course, our commitment to having an amazing time.

Cincinnati Pride is a celebration of love, acceptance, and diversity that takes place annually in the "Queen City." Pride weekend Cincinnati gets better and better each year, and they are kicking it up a notch this year!


The history of Cincinnati Pride dates back to 1973, when the first Cincinnati Gay Pride Day was held. Over the years, the event has grown and evolved into a vibrant, inclusive celebration of LGBTQ+ culture, activism, and community. Today, Cincinnati Pride celebrates a variety of activities, such as a parade, a street festival, and various events throughout the day and night.

Pride Details

After the parade, the party continues at the Cincinnati Pride Festival, which takes place in the heart of downtown at Sawyer Point Park. The festival is a lively celebration of LGBTQ+ culture, featuring live music, food and drink vendors, community booths, and more. Attendees can browse the vendor booths, enjoy delicious food and drink, and soak up the festive atmosphere.

One of the unique features of Cincinnati Pride is its commitment to supporting and uplifting the local LGBTQ+ community. In addition to providing a platform for LGBTQ+ voices and activism, the event raises funds for local organizations that support LGBTQ+ individuals and families. This ensures that the benefits of Cincinnati Pride extend beyond the event itself, and into the broader community.
