History of Palm Springs Pride Festival

Back in 1986, the Palm Springs Pride extravaganza kicked off like a discreet soirée, a dinner and variety spectacle that unveiled the dazzling talents of local entertainers within the lavish confines of the Riviera Resort's grand ballroom. The inaugural Pride Parade, christened as the Desert Gay and Lesbian Pride Parade, took its vivacious stride through the Palm Springs avenues, flaunting 35 vibrant units and receiving a rousing ovation from hundreds of celebrators. Since that modest genesis, the Greater Palm Springs Pride has evolved into a massive LGBTQ+ event in Palm Springs, magnetizing over 125,000 spirited attendees hailing from the depths of Southern California and beyond.
