We have answered some of the basic questions about Dallas Pride - Virtual edition.
1. What weekend is Dallas Pride?
Dallas Pride weekend was originally scheduled for June 6 & 7, 2020. When the COVID-19 Pandemic forced all of us into the 'stay at home' situation, we decided to postpone the weekend. After consulting with the State Fair and City of Dallas, the only available date was July 25 & 26.
With the ongoing concerns for public safety due to COVID-19, the decision was made to transition Dallas Pride 2020 into a Virtual event. The majority of our virtual events will still take place on our current Pride weekend of July 25 & 26.
2. Why was the Parade and Festival moved to Fair Park?
Several factors led to the decision to move both the Festival and Parade to Fair Park. Our home for many years, Cedar Springs Road, was scheduled for re-construction. Parade permits would not be available during this construction period. Changes in the permitting process and requirements for large scale events from the Office of Special Events also lead to the decision.
Fair Park offers room to grow, more parking and accessibility. New alcohol policies and upcoming enforcement on public streets also led to the decision.
