Festival Details - "Nashville PRIDE Parade"...

The 33rd annual Nashville Pride Festival and Parade will take place on September 11th and 12th at Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park. 

For over three decades, Nashville Pride has been celebrating, honoring, and uplifting the LGBTQIA+ community throughout Middle Tennessee. After dramatic growth in 2019, the organization started making plans to increase its footprint for the annual celebration. After a one-year pause due to the coronavirus pandemic, the organization is unveiling big changes for the 2021 celebration.

Since its inception, the Nashville Pride Festival and Parade has been held in June during Pride Month, a traditional celebration of LGBTQIA+ history, culture, and lives. The decision to change the dates comes after a review of community feedback and acknowledgement of the current health pandemic. Changing the dates of the festival and location will allow for the annual celebration to expand in size while keeping the health and safety of our staff, volunteers, entertainers and attendees paramount.


Alex Fortney, president of Nashville Pride, stated that “The increase in festival attendance over the past several years has been nothing short of inspiring. We are confident that the move to Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park will give us a more comfortable space that will allow for our continued growth in a safe and measured way.”


The Nashville Pride Board of Directors is working on plans to celebrate pride month in June of 2021 with a series of smaller events.

Full details on the festival, parade, entertainment, events, and more will be released in the spring of 2021. Vendor and parade applications will be available in early 2021. 

Nashville Pride, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization governed by an all-volunteer board, strongly encourages community involvement and feedback. More information about Nashville Pride, including corporate sponsorships, meeting information, and the Friends of Nashville Pride program, can be found at nashvillepride.org. Contact:
