The annual Denver PrideFest is a FREE weekend-long celebration of community, family and culture in Civic Center Park and recognized as one of the top 10 of its kind in the country. Organized by the city’s Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center of Colorado and open to all, it typically features three stages with live entertainment, a parade and much more. This year the event is going virtual on Saturday & Sunday, June 20 & 21.
The Denver Virtual Pride Parade will be broadcast live on social media at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday, June 21, the same time the traditional parade would have kicked off. Get those rainbow boas and beads ready and join The Center on Colfax’s team as they march in a new direction and take this year’s Coors Light Denver Pride Parade from Colfax to Cyberland!
Everyone Can Be a Part of This Year’s Parade. One of the benefits of going virtual is that it allows everyone to participate. Many of you will choose to watch the parade from along the parade “route” right at home.
Some of you will want to submit a virtual parade unit on behalf of your community organization, corporate or commercial company, entertainment group, or family and friends. Units with animals, now is your time!
Family and friends, ever wanted to be a group in the parade, now is your time! Challenged by walking the parade route, now is your time! The best part is, no matter how you choose to participate, you are supporting The Center on Colfax and their year-round services for our LGBTQ+ community.
Denver Virtual Pride will feature the best virtual performances from your favorite entertainers. Confirmed to date are Monet X Change, Jackie Cox and Naysha Lopez. Check here for an updated list of performers.
