Widely-regarded as the gay capital of the USA, the vibrant Californian city of San Francisco has long been home to a thriving LBGTQ+ scene, and every summer plays host to one of the largest and most renowned Pride parades on earth.
Every year, on the last weekend of June, San Francisco Pride takes over the heart of the city, with the iconic Civic Center Plaza playing host to two days of concerts, cabaret, exhibitions, talks, and much more, whilst the parade itself, which is held on Sunday and attracts over 1 million attendees, features over 200 floats and contingents - including the world-famous 400 plus strong Dykes on Bikes motorcycle group!
Following the cancellation of the 2020 edition, in June 2021, Pride San Francisco will return with a theme of ‘All in This Together’. Expect performances from world-renowned artists and musicians, along with over 20 community-programmed stages and venues hosting all manner of music and entertainment, the epic parade itself, and much much more!
27-28 June 2021.
