Phoenix Pride – 40th Phoenix Pride Festival 2021
One event on November 7, 2021 at 4:00 am
Phoenix Pride has announced newly rescheduled dates for our 40th Phoenix Pride Festival and Parade, now set to run Saturday and Sunday, November 6-7, 2021. The Parade will be moving to Saturday, November 6, 2021, with a kick-off time of 10 am MST.
The headlining performers announced to perform on the Circle K Festival Main Stage and the Latin Stage presented by Tito’s Handmade Vodka and Club Papi will remain unchanged with the exception of April Carrion and Lineysha Sparx in the Rupaul Drag Race Puerto Rico Invasion, and we are excited to now welcome Alexis Mateo!
“While we are all looking forward to reuniting as a community, Phoenix Pride always
puts the health and safety of our community first, and while the decision was not easy, we know that shifting our dates to November is the right thing to do for the organization and for all who attend the Phoenix Pride Festival and Parade to celebrate with us,” Phoenix Pride Executive Director Mike Fornelli stated. “We are eager to bring our family and friends back together, and with the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccines and improving forecasts for infection rates heading into the fall, we are confident that we will be able to gather in November to celebrate the incredible milestone of our 40th year of serving the Greater Phoenix community.”
“The Phoenix Pride Festival and Parade are more than just a weekend-long event,”
President of the Phoenix Pride Board of Directors Landen Smith added. “For many in the LGBTQ community, Pride represents the one moment in time during the year when they can be fully themselves, and openly – and safely – express their identity and culture. The absence of that moment over the past year has been felt sharply by many in our community, and even as we prepare for an amazing celebration in November, I want to remind everyone among our LGBTQ community and our allies that you are not alone, and we are all still connected as a community. If you need resources, help or just a friendly contact, please reach out to any member of the Phoenix Pride staff or board of directors, and we will do our very best to connect you with whatever you need during this difficult moment.”
The presenting sponsor for the 40th Phoenix Pride Festival will remain Bud Light Seltzer!
