Portland Pride Waterfront Festival

June 18 - June 19

Pride Waterfront Festival

Pride has been celebrated in Portland since the early 1970s, with the first outdoor celebration in 1976. Pride Northwest, Inc. has organized the annual Portland Pride Waterfront Festival and Parade since 1994.

The Portland Pride Festival is the single, largest visibility opportunity for our region’s LGBTQ+ community organizations and businesses, where they can attract new supporters and clients, increase their volunteer base, and raise much-needed funds. In addition, the festival attracts thousands of visitors to Portland each year, bringing significant revenue to the local LGBTQ+ business community and to the city as a whole. LGBTQ+ community members travel here from all over the Pacific Northwest to celebrate themselves and each other, in what is often the only safe and open environment that they may experience for the year. Pride Northwest is particularly committed to providing the Pride celebration, in order to create a safe and celebratory environment for our young people. Not only do things get better, Pride is what better looks like!

To receive updates on festival and parade plans for the 2022 Portland Pride Waterfront Festival be sure to sign up for the Portland Pride Email List. The parade will be on Sunday, June 19, at 11am.
