Pride weekend Dallas is a fabulous annual celebration of the LGBTQ+ community in Dallas, Texas since the 1980s.

IMPORTANT - This is the summer pride and the fall pride is called Pride in Dallas, located in the gayborhood of Oak Lawn.

Dallas Pride Details

Pride weekend Dallas is one of the biggest and most popular LGBTQ+ pride celebrations in the southern United States. This vibrant and fun-filled festival brings together people from all walks of life to celebrate diversity and love into the city of Dallas.

The history of Dallas Pride can be traced back to 1972, when a group of activists organized a peaceful demonstration in front of the Dallas County Courthouse to protest against discrimination and inequality faced by the LGBTQ+ community. This event was the first-ever pride march in Texas, and it paved the way for the modern-day Dallas Pride.

This year Dallas Pride will celebrate both the parade and its festivities in Fair Park, which is a National Historic Landmark that covers 277 acres east of downtown Dallas. The park is transformed into a lively rainbow carnival-like atmosphere, with vendors selling food, drinks, and LGBTQ+ merchandise, and various stages featuring live music, drag shows, and other wonderful performances.

Throughout the weekend, there are also a variety of educational and cultural events, such as panel discussions, film screenings, and art exhibits, that highlight the history and contributions of the LGBTQ+ community in Dallas.
