Know Before You Go
While there will be no Portland Pride Waterfront Festival in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there will be several virtual events and smaller in-person events. Other events listed here may be canceled or postponed. Please visit the Portland Pride Festival and Parade website for the latest information.
Known far and wide as a gay-friendly destination, the Rose City is open and accepting to visitors of all stripes. During the entire month of June, Portland gets friendlier than ever with the annual Portland Pride Festival and Parade, which is accompanied by LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, plus) community celebrations all over town.
Portland Pride usually includes a two-day festival at Waterfront Park and an epic, colorful and joyous parade winding through downtown Portland. With food, drinks, live music and nonprofit information booths lining the Willamette River, the festival is a great place to gather, mingle and get more information about local LGBTQ+ groups. Note: The Waterfront festival and parade are not being held in 2021.
In 2021, special, socially distanced events include “Pride Pics,” a two-day queer outdoor film festival at the Lot at Zidell Yards, June 16-17. The Portland Gay Men’s Chorus presents a virtual version of their annual concert, June 18 and 20. And the Pride Parade also takes to Zoom on June 20.
