Pride St. Louis, Inc. would love to have your company or organization as a PrideFest sponsor for the 2015 PrideFest in Saint Louis.
In 2011, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch estimated an attendance of 85,000 attendees over PrideFest weekend, once again making our festival one of the highest attended Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) events in the Midwest region.
Then, in 2012, we broke records again, with attendance estimated at 100,000+ over two days and the longest parade in our history.
2013 marked a significant milestone as PrideFest moved to Downtown St. Louis at Soldiers Memorial. The festival once again made history with over 125,000 attendees at PrideFest and nearly 80,000 spectators for the annual Pride Parade. The Parade route moved to center stage beginning at Kiener Plaza and running the length of Market St. to Soldiers Memorial.
2014 marked the 35th anniversary of PrideFest in St. Louis, the 45th anniversary of Stonewall and the 250th birthday of the City of St. Louis. Pride St. Louis, Inc. was proud to be an Official Celebration Partner of stl250.
In 2015, PrideFest celebrated it's third consecutive year in Downtown St. Louis. PrideFest continues to thrive in the Downtown environment with increased exposure, visibility and reach. Over 200,000 people attended the Festival in 2015 and over 90,000 people attended the parade, making it the second largest parade in St. Louis annually. With the increased attendance, the Festival now is the largest Downtown St. Louis festival each year.
