PRIDE: /prīd/ – a feeling of deep pleasure or satisfaction

As Northwest Ohio’s largest and most recognized event for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, intersex and allied (LGBTQIA) community, Toledo Pride is pleased to invite you to become a sponsor of the annual Toledo Pride celebration! This year’s events will be held Friday, August 18, and Saturday, August 19. Toledo Pride includes many exciting events for our community, including the Nite Glo 0.5K and KISS ‘N’ Drag on Friday, and the all-day Toledo Pride festival on Saturday. This year Toledo Pride will be partnering with “The Village On Adams” for the inaugural Big Rainbow Brunch Crawl down Adams Street on Sunday.

The Toledo Pride Festival is a large-scale, outdoor event showcasing the best in local and national entertainment. The festival also boasts a parade, food and merchandise vendors, and networking with numerous community organizations including social groups, churches, and health and wellness groups.

Toledo Pride has always been a family-friendly event and is excited to welcome a greater number of families and younger audience members to the parade.
