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. The Pride Parade is now recognized as the second largest parade in the City of St. Louis.
2013 marked a historic change for Pride St. Louis, Inc and the annual PrideFest celebration as the festival relocated to Downtown St. Louis at Soldiers Memorial. With record setting attendance numbers for both the parade and festival the Board is very excited about the 35th anniversary of Pride in St. Louis.
2014 was the 35th anniversary of Pride in Saint Louis and saw over 150,000 attendees along with an estimated 90,000 parade goers. The Festival layout featured 160 exhibitors and sponsors with 2 stages of entertainment, a children’s area, Athletes Village and much more. It also marked the second year in Downtown St. Louis at Soldiers Memorial Parks. In 2015 the Festival topped record numbers and reached over 200,000 spectators and attendees.
Pride St. Louis, Inc. is grateful for and committed to the partnerships we have cultivated with past vendors and we are excited about the addition of new vendors each year. We truly appreciate your support, not only of Pride St. Louis, Inc., but also of the entire LGBT Community. We look forward to discussing the opportunities available to your business to participate in PrideFest 2016. Together, we can work to once again produce a record setting Pride Celebration!
