This year, in addition to the stages and musical entertainment, we’ll be creating multiple activations and attractions that will bring guests and sponsors together in an environment that entertains, educates and inspires.
Dance to your own beat in this disco DJ dome. Strap on the headset and find your freedom with fellow revelers. We’re here, we’re queer, get down with it.
Leather dominates at our adult fun zone. Kink and body confidence are the order of the day, so strap in for a titillating adventure with one of our most vibrant communities.
Family Fun Zone
Enjoy a family-friendly area to relax and play alongside interactive activations that celebrate diversity and individuality at all ages.
At the centerpiece of our Pride activations is a fun new feature for the whole family. We’re coming back strong with a rainbow-powered roller rink that celebrates our collective joy! Meet us at the rink for a session of self-expression, all set to a pulsing soundtrack of iconic dance anthems through the decades.
Meet us at the main stage between musical acts and watch the dance competition get lit. Here, every category is FIERCE. Watch the most awarded houses battle it out on center stage or werk it out in the crowd sessions, showcasing your own special style of sashay on the runway.
Don’t miss our artist walls, spaces for reflection and interaction, designed by local community artists who bring the lived experience to Long Beach Pride in bold, inspiring statements of purpose and promise.
Join us as we center the trans community and the trans women of color who pioneered everything Pride is through protest for survival and human rights. The reason we have a parade today is thanks to those who came before and fought with their lives. Our pop-up museum shares the historical context of our growing movement and highlights the work still to be done.
Didn’t come in full face? Don’t sweat it. Our drag diva glam squad will give you the business. Step up for a sprinkling of glitter and a quick lip pop. Or book a sit-down session and emerge completely transformed.
Festival Photo Gallery
Long Beach Pride™, a 501(c)3 non-profit, is an all-volunteer organization that produces the annual three-day Long Beach Pride™ festival, parade and teen pride annually in July. The third largest Pride festival and parade in California, we celebrate the LGBTQ+ community with a focus on inclusion, and work to educate the wider community that diversity builds a stronger and healthier society. Taking pride in what we have achieved since 1984, we strive to teach the future generations that the battle for acceptance continues.
