Grand Rapids Pride Festival will be held at the Calder Plaza, Downtown Grand Rapids on Saturday, June 15. The festival will feature musical guests, drag queens and plenty of vendors.

During this year’s pride festival, over 100 vendors are expected to fill Calder Plaza while local LGBTQ artists will be featured on the Community Stage. The Main Stage will also feature local drag queens and entertainment by Max, Sizzy Rocket, and Mýa.

Grand Rapids Pride Festival organizers try to create a community for LGBTQ members while bringing business allies and organizations together to celebrate diversity and inclusion. All of the proceeds from this event will go to support the Grand Rapids Pride Center which has been around since 1988.

General admission tickets are $8 at the door on Saturday, June 15 and VIP Lounge tickets are $50. Tickets can also be purchased online using the festival’s Eventbrite page. The event begins at 12 p.m. and ends at 11 p.m.
