Dallas Pride is out and proud with a return to Fair Park June 4-5 to celebrate love and inclusion. Pride weekend kicks off with the Dallas Pride Music Festival on Saturday, followed by Dallas Pride’s Alan Ross Texas Freedom Parade on Sunday. Bring the whole family to these all-ages events, which make for a weekend of fun honoring the LGBTQ+ community, its allies, sponsors and supporters.
“We are so appreciative for the love and support shown to our community,” said Jaron Turnbow, executive director of Dallas Pride. “And now it’s time to be out and proud together!”
The festivities begin on Saturday, June 4, in Fair Park with the Dallas Pride Music Festival, a family-friendly event featuring a variety of musical and dance performances on both the outdoor main stage and on an indoor community stage. More than 200 vendors will have booths to see and shop at the festival. Family Pride Zone, an area designed for families, will feature several bounce houses, face painting, entertainment for the kids and the Pride Train ride in the Automobile Building at Fair Park. The festival also features Teen Pride, which fosters a safe environment for LGBTQ+ youth ages 13 to 19 and their friends to enjoy live entertainment from artists and DJs, and other age-appropriate activities. Local animal rescue groups will also be on-site for guests to meet a possible new furry family member. With indoor and outdoor activities and plenty to eat, see and shop, this is a day of fun for all ages.

Tickets are $10 for adults (ages 18+), $5 for teens (ages 13-17) and admission for children 12 and under is complimentary. Tickets go on sale in March at jaront.sg-host.com.
