Albuquerque PrideFest 2019

A Deadly Sin to Get Excited About

It's that magical time of year again: Albuquerque PrideFest! This year, the community has plenty of reasons to celebrate, but none more momentous than the 50th anniversary of Stonewall. This pivotal moment in LGBTQI history sparked the theme for this year's event, “Remember the Past, Create the Future.” On Saturday, June 8, start with the parade at 10am and then bounce over to Expo NM for the main event, which bangs until 6:30pm. This all-ages event includes two stages of live entertainment, a kids' zone, indoor dance club, health fair, water park area, history and archives, beer, liquor, food and more fun you can throw some shade at. The ticket price of $15 supports the beautiful and vibrant community and earns you an unforgettable day filled with love and acceptance. (Mayo Lua de Frenchie)
