LONG BEACH, Calif. (July 21, 2021) – Long Beach Pride™ is coming back next summer after a two-year break due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
The 37th Annual Long Beach Pride Parade & Festival™ will be held July 8, 9 and 10, 2022, along Shoreline Drive in Downtown Long Beach. It will feature live music from top artists on the music and dance stages while showcasing local artists and special community programming. Guests will enjoy an enhanced experience by visiting different venues within the festival. The food courts will feature food from local eateries and many festival favorites, including favorite food trucks.
The long-running event is presented by Long Beach Lesbian and Gay Pride™, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose focus is to produce and support activities that educate, encourage and celebrate pride, inclusion and respect for humanity.
“This festival feels like a wonderful comeback for Long Beach Pride™ and all our guests. We have missed all of them,” said Elsa Martinez, president of Long Beach Pride™, “I am so excited to start the planning for this annual event. We changed the date of the Festival and Parade to be able to enjoy the incredible setting that we have historically used with warmer weather and longer days. This is a long-awaited celebration of our entire LGBTQ+ community.“
Additional details about the Long Beach Pride Parade & Festival™ will be made available in the coming weeks. Follow Long Beach Pride™ on Facebook, @longbeachpride; Twitter, @LongBeachPride; and on Instagram, @LBPride for the latest updates.
