This is the main event! Join us for a vibrant celebration of WNY’s LGBTQ community. The festival features community organizations, family activities, food and beverage vendors, retail vendors, and live performances. With more than 15,000 people in one spot, it’s a great opportunity to connect with new people and organizations.

We hope to see you at the Festival.  And, some new faces, too. Invite your friends and family who haven’t experienced the Festival to come and see what it’s all about.
