Stand Up for Gay Pride

Show your support for the LGBTQI community at the 32nd Annual Sonoma County Pride! People around the county come and stand for what they believe in – that love is love is love. Dress up and be yourself – this year’s theme is “Year of Love” so you’ve got lots of room to show your spirit.

When and Where

At Old Courthouse Square in Downtown Santa Rosa, celebrate for three whole days from May 31st to June 2nd. If you are visiting for the celebration, some hotels are offering special discounts for those coming out for the event.

May 31st

Start off the night with the pre-celebration kickoff party Neon Lights. Dance to music from three performing DJs. Opening at 9pm at Casa Del Mar, pre-order prices are $10 while buying at the door will cost $15. It’s a 21+ event.

June 1st

Watch – or march in – the main event at the annual parade. The festival will fill the streets with colors, costumes, and much more to bring the celebration to life. Families are welcome. The official “Love Shack” afterparty will be at La Rosa – it’s 21+, so leave the kids at home.

June 2nd

Bring your picnic basket and relax in Courthouse Square park where you and your friends can enjoy the sun and the festival around you. Don’t want to weigh yourself down with food? Many food trucks will be parked along the street for you and your friends to choose from. Have a pet? They are welcome to join in the festivities.

Have fun and celebrate love at Sonoma County’s Annual Pride!
