Overview:

The legendary Chicago Pride Fest kicks off Pride Week in Chicago on the weekend of the Summer Solstice. Held a week before Chicago’s Pride Parade, in America’s first recognized gay village, the 20th annual Chicago Pride Festival offers organized, quality outdoor entertainment for LGBTQ Chicagoans as well as out-of-town visitors throughout the first of two Pride Weekends.

Chicago Pride Fest features non-stop musical entertainment on four stages, food and drink and more than 150 vendors offering fine arts, crafts, world market goods and merchandise targeted to the LGBTQ community. National musical acts featured on one of the event’s four stages in the past have included RuPaul, Jennifer Hudson, Big Freedia, Estelle, Debbie Gibson, Thelma Huston, Leann Rimes, Zelma Davis of C&C Music Factory, Taylor Dayne, Crystal Waters, Pablo Vitar, Linda Clifford, Jessica Sanchez, Taylor Dane, Hugo, Mya, and many more A-list performers.

One of the most popular and unique components of this festival is the Pride Pet Parade- a junior version of the Chicago Pride Parade- in which proud owners parade their costumed pets on a short route throughout the events’ surrounding blocks.
