LOUISVILLE PRIDE FESTIVAL EVENTS
CELEBRATE LOUISVILLE PRIDE FESTIVAL WITH A PRIVATE EVENT AT THE MERCURY BALLROOM OR THE LOUISVILLE PALACE
What’s better than celebrating equality and love with a supportive community of like-minded individuals? Doing it in one of the country’s most up-and-coming cities.
The Louisville pride scene is thriving, and this summer is the perfect time to show your support and experience some of the best sights, sounds and tastes of the Midwest.
YOUR GUIDE TO PRIDE
First, the festivals. Louisville’s LGBTQ community and their allies gather for two days every summer for the Kentuckiana Pride Festival. Thousands of supporters start the weekend with a march for pride on the Big Four Lawn in Downtown Louisville, followed by live local music and fun. The celebration continues at noon on Saturday with two stages full of national and local musicians and live performers.
The Louisville Pride Festival is a one-day celebration of Louisville coming together as one. Set in the popular Highlands neighborhood, the Louisville Pride Festival is family-friendly, free and open to the public. Enjoy DJ’s and MC’s, live music, drag entertainers and local LGBTQ celebrities. Donate at the door or purchase VIP and backstage passes online.
While you’re here, make sure to experience some of the other spots that are putting Louisville on the map as America’s next favorite city.
Start with brunch at Louvino, with locations in Highlands and Douglas Hills. Louvino serves up small-plate brunch options like pancake tacos or stuffed French toast, all with a side of jazz.
For some after-festival cocktails, visit Big Bar in Highlands. It’s billed as a gay bar but everyone is welcome, and it’s tough not to have fun in this laidback setting. Bring your fiercest performance for the twice-a-week karaoke night.
Catch a drag show at Play Louisville, the city’s hottest theatre and dance party. Play hosts the country’s best drag performers every weekend and features fabulous costumed dance events like 80’s Party and Salsa Night.
