St. Pete Pride returns for a month of events this June

Pride Mural on Central Avenue featuring 11 different colors

St. Pete Pride has announced its plans for a month of celebrations this June in the Sunshine City. While it won’t be the typical extravaganza many are accustomed to, organizers are working with myriad local businesses to make this a safe and sensational occasion.

“Our Pride celebration may look a little different this year, but we’re proud to announce: WE’RE BACK!” That is the message Pride organizers posted on the event’s Facebook page Monday, April 12.

Throughout the month of June, St Pete Pride will host 4 themed weeks to celebrate the LGBTQIA+ community while showcasing the best of St. Pete.

Each weekend, thousands of people will (safely) gather for signature events hosted in outdoor locations, while all month long, over a hundred participating St. Pete restaurants, cultural institutions and retail partners will attract guests with events, discounts and Pride-friendly offerings.

From Outdoor Adventure Week, to Family Week, Arts & Qulture and Taste of PrideFest, St Pete Pride has worked diligently to design a creative and safe Pride with a twist.

“We’re giving our LGBTQIA+ community the opportunity to gather, educate and celebrate while ensuring safety and wellness in the time of COVID-19,” wrote St. Pete Pride organizers. This year most events will be ticketed to enforce capacity regulations. Tickets go on sale May 1, 2021.
