About the SF Pride Celebration

San Francisco Pride has been said to be "one of the last remaining pride events that can truly be called a rite of passage."

The SF Pride Celebration will be held over the weekend of June 25 and 26, 2016, in downtown San Francisco in Civic Center at the foot of San Francisco's historic City Hall where Harvey Milk once stood and addressed Pride-goers more tha thirty years ago.

With over 200 parade contingents, 300 exhibitors, and more than 20 stages and venues, the San Francisco LGBT Pride Celebration and Parade is the largest LGBT gathering in the nation.

The Celebration at Civic Center is host to our Main Stage which has been host to incredible acts like Lady Gaga, the Backstreet Boys, Asian pop sensation BoA, Solange Knowles, the Cliks, Margaret Cho, Kat DeLuna, Inaya Day, Crystal Waters, and Big Freedia, among others.

2016 Event Theme

For Racial and Economic Justice

The event theme for the 46th annual San Francisco Pride Celebration & Parade was selected by Pride's Membership at our Annual General Meeting on September 12, 2015.
