Whether you're a seasoned attendee or a first-timer eager to join the festivities, this guide is your inside scoop to make the most out of your Denver Pride experience.

A Celebration of History and Culture

Denver Pride, held annually at Civic Center Park, has a rich history dating back to 1975. It has grown from a small gathering to one of the largest pride events in the country, attracting hundreds of thousands of participants each year. The event is a celebration of the LGBTQ community, promoting inclusivity, equality, and love. This year, Denver Pride 2024 marks a monumental 50th anniversary.

Why Denver Pride 2024 is Worthwhile

Denver Pride 2024 is not just a parade; it's a two-day festival filled with music, food, and fun. Day two of the event features the Coors Light Denver Pride Parade, a spectacular procession that lights up Colfax Ave with vibrant costumes and floats. The atmosphere is electric, filled with laughter, cheers, and a sense of unity that is truly heartwarming.

The Parade: A Splash of Color

Sunday morning shines with the Coors Light Denver Pride Parade, a spectacle of color, music, and joy that draws over 100,000 spectators. Starting at Cheesman Park, the parade weaves its way up Franklin to Colfax, culminating in Civic Center Park. It’s not just a parade; it’s a statement of solidarity, pride, and community.

A Market for All: The Inaugural Gayborhood Market

In a special addition to this year’s festivities, the inaugural Gayborhood Market in Lincoln Park offers a platform for local LGBTQ+ small businesses and artisans. It's a chance to support the community while discovering unique crafts and goods, adding a meaningful layer to your Pride experience.
