Dallas Pride Weekend
Dallas Pride is out and proud with a return to celebrate love and inclusion. Pride weekend kicks off with the Dallas Pride Music Festival, followed by Dallas Pride’s Alan Ross Texas Freedom Parade the following day. The event makes a weekend of fun honoring the LGBTQ+ community, its allies, sponsors, and supporters.
The festivities begin with the Dallas Pride Music Festival on Saturday, a family-friendly event featuring a variety of musical and dance performances on both the outdoor main stage and on an indoor community stage. More than 200 vendors will have booths to see and shop at the festival. Family Pride Zone, an area designed for families, will feature several bounce houses, face painting, entertainment for the kids and the Pride Train ride in the Automobile Building at Fair Park.
The festival also features Teen Pride, which fosters a safe environment for LGBTQ+ youth ages 13 to 19 and their friends to enjoy live entertainment from artists and DJs, and other age-appropriate activities. Local animal rescue groups will also be on-site for guests to meet a possible new furry family member.
The Alan Ross Texas Freedom Parade on Sunday will encircle the Cotton Bowl® Stadium with fun floats, outrageous costumes, bands, performers and groups all marching to show support for the LGBTQ+ community. Named in honor of the late Alan Ross, the long-time executive director of Dallas Pride, this mile-long event will feature more than 200 parade entries.
