About:

Celebrate Pride on the East Side! Join us on June 22 in Grandview Park for the annual free and all-ages East Side Pride Festival.

Throw down a picnic blanket and take in an array of diverse performances, visit our Community Market with over 30 vendors and Community Partners, and grab a bite to eat at a food truck.

East Side Pride is directly beside a large playground and mini water park, and features several activities for children. Families welcome!

Bring a picnic or treat yourself at one of our amazing food trucks serving up an array of dishes with vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free options - Stó:l? Bannock, Chickpea & Come Arepa

We are pleased to be partnering with Saige Community Food Bank who will be firing up the grill and dishing out veggie and meat hot dogs at affordable prices - all proceeds support Saige Community Food Bank. Visit their bbq, play games for a chance to win prizes, learn how you can access resources year-round, and support Saige!

Line-Up:
We are pleased to welcome back multidisciplinary artist, musician and performer Tonye as our emcee.
