It’s thaaat time of year again!

     The St. Pete Pride Festival is the Florida’s LARGEST festival, expected to bring in over 50,000 people! Be a part of the atmosphere. Festival goers come together to make history while enjoying a day of live performances and entertainment, community booths, art and fantastic food in paradise. Each year since 2003, the Pride festival has grown and continued to spread recognition for LGBTQ Human Rights, issues, and community diversity. As the event spread awareness of LGBTQ rights, more state representatives began to send their support letters to be included in the Pride Guide. This event encourages community cooperation towards economic and social growth and community support of the LGBTQ+ community.

     As the even itself grows through parade and support, bigger and bigger artists are invite to perform and collaborate with the festival parade.  This year, 2019, the festival is headlining Rita Ora and Lisa Loeb. Lisa Loeb, recognized for her platinum-selling number one hit song “Stay” is headlining the Friday night SP2 Concert in North Straub Park from 7pm – 10pm. British recording artist Rita Ora is headlining our 1st ever After-Parade Concert. Her global hit “Your Song” written by Ed Sheeran and Steve Mac has reached more than 352 million streams. Other singles include “Lonely Together” with Avicii, “For You” with Liam Payne, as well as her girl-power anthem “Girls” which saw Rita team up with Cardi B, Bebe Rexha and Charli XCX.
