It's time for Pride weekend Milwaukee for Pridefest - the shiniest gem in the Dairyland's event calendar with over 40,000 other LGBTQ+ pride-goers.

Pride Details

Yes, you heard right! This isn't just any old festival - it's the world's largest LGBTQ+ event held on permanent festival grounds.

When you arrive at Milwaukee's stunning lakefront, prepare to be greeted by a delightful spectacle of love, acceptance, and the best sequin outfits this side of Vegas. Get ready to bask in a riot of color, glitter, and confetti while the music thumps and the cheers of ecstatic revelers echo around you.

But don't think Pridefest is all pomp and no substance. The festival grounds are packed with a veritable smorgasbord of events and activities. You'll find an exciting blend of high-energy performances, insightful workshops, and thrilling drag shows - where the queens are so flawless, you'll swear their contouring was done by Michelangelo himself.

And let's not forget about the food. From classic Wisconsin cheese curds that'll make your taste buds sing, to adventurous food truck delights that'll have you coming back for seconds (or thirds), there's something for every palate.

The best part about Pridefest, though, is its big-hearted community spirit. It's a magical space where everyone is welcomed with open arms and where differences are not just accepted but celebrated. So come as you are, and leave with a heart full of pride and a newfound love for the City of Festivals.

So, dust off your dancing shoes, practice your best parade wave, and stock up on biodegradable glitter. Milwaukee Pridefest is a celebration that's as unique, vibrant, and fabulous as the community it honors. It's more than just a festival; it's an experience that'll leave you counting down the days until next year.

No matter who you are in the LGBTQ+ community, friend or bestie, you and yours should come as you are. After all, diversity in gender, sexuality and inclusivity is what makes PRIDE so incredible year after year. Can't wait to see you and your friends in the streets of "Cream City" (we didn't make this up!) to help celebrate another year of Pride weekend Milwaukee!
