The Austin PRIDE Festival and Parade on Saturday, August 11, at Festival Gardens is the largest annual LGBTQ advocacy and fundraising event in Central Texas.
Doors to the family-friendly event will open at 11 a.m. and festivities will continue until 6 p.m. The event will feature games and carnival rides, a family area, drinks, food, and over 150 booths of local non-profits organizations and businesses. The PRIDE Festival features dozens of participating non-profit organizations and social clubs informing and interacting with festival attendees. Austin PRIDE Festival is also proud to be the setting for Central Texas’s largest HIV testing day of the year, where several local services can reach those populations most at-risk for HIV. Each year, countless people find new organizations to join, causes to support and opportunities to volunteer.
With over 400,000 attending in 2017, this year organizers expect an increase in attendance. Patrons of the event have come to expect amazing entertainment from Austin PRIDE with musical headliners and live performances, 50 plus vendors, games, activities, family zone and more.
