Dayton Pride Festival & Parade - Online Celebration for 2020

Dayton PRIDE 2020

It is with heavy hearts that the Greater Dayton LGBT Center Board of Directors has decided to cancel in-person LGBTQIA+ Pride for Dayton this year. We originally postponed the events for Pride weekend from June to August hoping the local effects of the COVID pandemic would have been minimized by that time. Unfortunately, it is painfully obvious that we are not able to hold large gatherings and parades such as Pride without risking the health and wellbeing of our community. Although it is never easy to make a decision such as this, we decided that your health is the most important thing this year.

Of course, we can’t just skip recognition of Pride during 2020 so we will be shifting our August 22 celebration from in-person to online. We are still putting plans together, but we will be holding a televised and Facebook Live event from 1pm to 3pm. The celebration will be similar to our Pride Stage Show featuring local speakers and entertainment.

Dayton Pride is the Miami Valley’s longest running and largest LGBTQIA celebration. Each year it gets more vendors at the festival, more groups in the parade, more community sponsor support, and most importantly – more of our community coming out to show our colors and spread the love!

Thousands of gay, lesbian, bisexual, pansexual, asexual, transgender, questioning, and queer folks from all over our region and beyond celebrate at Dayton Pride. Thousands more of our family members, friends, and allies come to celebrate and show support. Dayton Pride has become a powerful three-day event featuring Friday evening’s community entertainment extravaganza followed by the .5k Bar Crawl, Saturday’s parade before the festival on Courthouse Square, and the ‘Spikes & Heels’ kickball tourney on Sunday. Beyond that, the weekend is full of other activities such as the Dayton Gay Men’s Chorus Concert and Dayton PFLAG 5k Run/Walk.
