The largest Festival and Parade in Utah aims at building UNITY within the community

PRIDE is back and more inclusive than ever. Join us as we bring the community together for the Utah Pride Festival and Parade on June 1-2. The festival will include accessible ticket pricing, inclusive activities, local entertainment, and a safe space to celebrate who we are.

The theme for the 2024 Pride Festival is CommUNITY - Building Unity Within The Community, which will involve something that’s never been done before: bringing all Pride organizations in the state to the festival grounds under one rainbow.

“As an organization with a mission to Unite, Empower and Celebrate our LGBGTQ+ Community, one of the best ways we can do that is by uniting our local pride celebrations,” said Chad Call, Executive Director of the Utah Pride Center. “We have to rebuild trust, and we can do that by listening to our community and including them in shaping the future of Pride.”

Inside the Utah Pride Festival located in Washington Square in downtown Salt Lake City, local Pride organizations from around the state are invited to have a table in Rainbow Alley, a centralized location to make introductions, collaborate, network, recruit, and share their stories with the tens of thousands of festival attendees.

“Our goal is to bring everyone to the table to share their ideas, to better understand their needs, and most importantly, to learn how the Utah Pride Center can support their local efforts to spread Pride through all of Utah,” said Call.

The 2024 Utah Pride Festival kicks off on Saturday, June 1 with a rally at 10:00 AM on the steps of the Utah State Capitol. Co-hosted with Equality Utah, the two organizations will host a diverse group of speakers. Gatherers will then march down State Street toward Washington Square where the Pride Festival will take place. Festival gates open at 11AM on Saturday and our community will be treated to two full days of exciting vendor booths, tasty food and bever-age, and fun activities for the whole family.

This year, entertainment will be provided by an all-star lineup of local Utah talent! Two stages on either side of the festival will showcase singers, dancers, and queer artists from all over the state, and a third stage will house the return of Utah Pride Karaoke! Stay tuned for more announcements concerning our schedule of performers here.

The annual Utah Pride Parade is on Sunday, June 2, starting at 100 South and West Temple and ends at 700 South and 200 East. This free event begins at 10AM, and festival gates open afterwards at 12PM Noon.

ASL interpreters will be at every event with accessible seating and sections where visitors can see the interpreters. ADA ramps will also be installed at all entrances and multiple locations inside festival grounds to ensure accessibility. UPC has also partnered with the Salt Lake City Public Library to provide a calming space for folx who may need it.

This year’s Pride festivities is being led by a Volunteer Steering Committee which includes a combination of staff, board, and community members. Additionally, we have dozens of Planning Committee members who are volunteering to bring the big plans to life. Sponsors, volunteer groups, individual volunteers, community organizations, donors and more are coming out again to be part of Utah Pride 2024. More details on the festival and parade can be found below.


This year’s theme is “Queering Faith”
Thursday, May 30 | 7 PM

The Pride Interfaith Worship Service has kicked off the Pride Festival for more than two decades. It is a time of celebration, reflection, prayer, memorial, music and love as the many faith traditions that are expressly welcoming to and fully inclusive of the LGBTQ+ community come together to “queer faith” in the hope that our arms might open wider still.

This year’s service is hosted by Congregation Kol Ami, 2425 Heritage Way, Salt Lake City, UT84109.
