Annual Events Overview
From its humble beginnings in 1974 as an informal gathering in the park, the Utah Pride Festival has come a long way.
It is now a Salt Lake City event that grows bolder and brighter with every year.
The Festival empowers the LGBTQ community of Salt Lake, as well as the state of Utah as a whole, to come together, celebrate and educate. The Festival is now attended by more than 35,000 people and continues to grow each year. Festival activities include:
marches & rallies, interfaith services, a 5K charity run, and of course, the beloved Pride Parade.
A broad spectrum of people can be found at all these events, including members of the LGBTQ community, their family members and straight allies who wish to show their support.
