Ready for another Round?
I HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT THE PARTY.
Please contact Info@LongBeachPride.com
WHAT KIND OF SECURITY AND MEDICAL STAFF WILL YOU HAVE AT THE FESTIVAL?
We have extensive security and medical staff onsite. If, at any time during the festival you need any assistance, seek out the medical tent, or look for a nearby security officer or festival staff member. Security is of paramount importance, as it is our priority to provide a safe and enjoyable weekend for all of our guests.
SHOULD I BRING ANYTHING?
No, because the bar will be open after 6 p.m.
WHAT WILL I NEED?
Fans can enjoy a variety of appetizing food choices from traditional festival and fair food to gourmet food trucks. More details about the party culinary experience coming soon.
IS LBLGP INC. A PART OF THE CENTER?
No, we are not affiliated with the Long Beach Gay and Lesbian Center. The Center can be reached at: CenterLB.org Center Hours: M-F 10am-9pm, Sat. 10am-4pm Community Help Desk: (562) 434-4455
HOW MUCH IS THE ENTRANCE FEE?
TICKETS- Entrance to the festival is $20 pre-sale and $25 at the door. (Each Day) Children under age 12 are FREE but must be accompanied by an adult. Senior Citizens over 65 are free with valid ID as well as Veterans and Active Military with ID. No children under age 12 allowed on festival site after 5:30pm. No refunds after admission is paid shall be honored. Guests must request optional admission discount upon entry.
CAN I BUY PRESALE TICKETS?
Yes. Tickets will be available online. Military personnel and Veterans with valid ID may be admitted free upon request at the gate.
DO VOLUNTEERS RECEIVE COMPLIMENTARY ADMISSION?
Volunteers who work a minimum of 4 hours for LBLGP (not to be confused with a vendor at the festival or parade) may request free entrance into the festival.
WHERE ARE THE ENTRANCES FOR THE FESTIVAL?
There are three entrances to the festival: MAIN GATE (On Shoreline Drive south of Ocean Blvd.) PINE GATE (On Shoreline Drive and Shoreline Village) LINDEN GATE (From the Convention Center parking lot)
WHERE DOES THE PARADE START?
Parade steps-off is at 10:30am on Ocean and Lindero Ave. Parade proceeds west along Ocean Blvd. to conclude at Alamitos Blvd. near the Festival grounds. Parade Volunteers are always welcome, and are asked to report to the Volunteer Check-In at Ocean Blvd. and Coronado Ave.
WHAT CAN I BRING TO THE FESTIVAL?
For everyone’s safety, these conditions will be stricly enforced by Festival Security and Staff: NO Broadcast or Industrial Cameras are allowed without going through the Media Application process. NO distribution of pamphlets, fliers, handbills, etc., will be allowed on festival grounds. NO roving solicitation of any kind. NO outside beverage containers allowed into the festival grounds. NO PETS. Neither EXOTIC nor DOMESTIC animals will be allowed on the festival grounds. Service animals (with authentication documents) will be the only exception. NO folding chairs, bikes, skates or rollerblades.
I'M ALMOST 21 , CAN I BUY BEER?
NO, we strictly enforce a ZERO-TOLERANCE policy of underage consumption of alcohol. Any guest under the age of 21 found consuming alcohol will immediately be evicted from the festival.
IS THERE RE-ENTRY THIS YEAR?
Due to new restrictions placed on Long Beach Lesbian and Gay Pride by the ABC (Alcoholic Beverage Control), City of Long Beach and Long Beach Police Department in order for patrons to continue to be able to move freely about at the festival while enjoying an alcoholic beverage, Long Beach Pride is not allowing re-entry. Given our event is private we are still under ABC jurisdiction and of the options offered by the ABC and LBPD the no-entry decision will have the least impact on our event. While this restriction is new, we are confident that it will not impact your Pride experience. We thank you for your understanding and support. We look forward to creating a meaningful and memorable 2016 Pride together.
Enjoy The Festival
