Pride Fest 2024: A Celebration of Unity and Joy

Every June, New Orleans becomes a pulsating heart of rainbow colors, where LGBTQ individuals and allies from various subcultures come together. This year, the highlight of the festival will be the annual PrideFest, set to take place on June 8th, right outside the iconic Phoenix Bar on Elysian Fields. Imagine a block party bursting with live entertainment, scrumptious food, refreshing drinks, and an atmosphere electrified with joy and pride.

Starting at 11 a.m., PrideFest is more than just a party; it’s a day where you can express yourself freely and confidently, surrounded by an inclusive community that celebrates every spectrum of the rainbow. Revel in the diversity and unity as queer people and allies from numerous communities share moments of happiness and solidarity.

From Festivity to Parade: A Seamless Transition

As the sun begins to set and the festivities of the PrideFest reach their crescendo, the excitement doesn’t wane—it simply shifts scenes. At 7:00 p.m., the vibrant NOLA Pride Parade takes off from the very grounds of the PrideFest. The parade winds its way through the historic Marigny and into the bustling French Quarter, encapsulating the spirit of New Orleans in every step. With flamboyant floats, energetic dance troops, and bands that make you move, the parade is a spectacle of pride and celebration.
