About Pride is Alive
Pride is Alive is a free outdoor event and is open to our entire community. This event will run August 27 - 29, hosted at Ballpark Village. For the last two years, we have not been able to celebrate with St. Louis’ annual PrideFest in June. Our community has been innovative in ways to bring people together, whether socially distant or virtually, and we have remained stronger together. As we are slowly able to gather together, PrideSTL is hosting an event to bring our community together for the first time in two years.
