Pride Houston: 40th Anniversary LGBT Festival & Parade

June 23, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 11:00 pm

2018 marks the 40th Anniversary of the Houston LGBT Pride Celebration®, the OFFICIAL Pride of Houston.

This event is ADMISSION FREE and open to the public to attend/watch (no age limit). No tickets are necessary except for the VIP area. There are no tickets necessary for general admission.

For VIP Tickets:
Remember there is no general admission as it’s FREE.

It will again be in DOWNTOWN HOUSTON. City Hall in Downtown was where the event that is widely know as Houston’s own “Stonewall” occurred in 1977, as thousands protested against Anita Bryant.
The Houston Pride Festival® and Houston Pride Parade® are at the center of the Celebration with an attendance of over 700,000 people every year from all over the world. Come and join all of the LGBT Community in celebrating who we are as a people and how much more we still need to FIGHT FOR.


As a reminder, firearms are not allowed into the festival. There will be HPD officers, Private Security Forces and random vehicle searches within the festival.
