Chicago Pride Fest

  • Halsted Steet, between Addison and Grace St. 3601 N Halsted St Chicago, IL, 60613 United States (map)

The 19th annual Chicago Pride Fest®, June 22-23, 2019, is a legendary two-day street festival held the weekend leading up to the Chicago Pride Parade with up to 100,000 expected to attend, celebrating LGBTQ+ life, culture and community. This year marks a milestone as we honor the 50th anniversary of Stonewall and the birth of the Pride movement.

The festival features live music by popular artists, 4 stages, food and drink, 100+ arts/craft and merchant vendors, DJ’s and dancing, drag shows, pet parade, Out At Wrigley National Anthem Singing Contest, sponsor booths and more.

Join us this summer for a love-filled celebration of diversity, equality, and the Chicago LGBTQ+ community at Halsted Street and Addison in Boystown, America’s first recognized gay village.

The festival is easily accessible via the CTA Red Line Addison station at historic Wrigley Field, also multiple bus lines, and ride share car/cab services with convenient access to downtown hotels and other lodging.
