Join us on the historic Pennsylvania Avenue for the 42nd Annual Pride Festival in the Nation’s Capital! Come for a day full of entertainment, music, food, drink, education, and celebration. The festival is open to everyone, and there is no fee for entry; however donations are very much encouraged and appreciated! The Festival is family-friendly. Due to large crowds and very hot asphalt, we recommend that pets stay at home. The Pride Festival includes three stages of national and local talent and will host 300 exhibitors including local and community groups, national sponsors, local businesses, food vendors, restaurants, and businesses looking to promote their services to our community.
