Join us this August for Toledo Pride 2016!  In 2015, we welcomed nearly 20,000 people to Promenade Park for Toledo Pride.  This year, we can’t wait for you to see what we have in store!  Plans are currently underway for 2016 and we will post more updates as we have them.

Toledo Pride is excited to announce the addition of a second stage to this year’s Saturday festivities. The Family Stage will offer a variety of events and activities for kids of all ages! 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.

This year we will once again be bringing you:

  • Nite Glo 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run, Walk and Roll – Join 500 runners and walkers for the annual Nite Glo on Friday, August 26, a nighttime race and walk illuminated by glow sticks, blacklights and more.  It’s a great time every year, rain or shine!
  • KISS ‘N’ Drag – 1,000 came out to 92.5 KISS-FM will help us officially kick-off the Toledo Pride weekend on Friday, August 26 with KISS ‘N’ Drag.  Immediately following the Nite Glo 5K, head to Levis Square as the 92.5 KISS-FM joins forces with some of the area’s most talented drag queens and kings to rock the night away.  All proceeds benefited the Toledo Northwest Ohio Food Bank.
  • Toledo Pride Parade – Every year the Toledo Pride parade grows as more and more local businesses, community organizations, LGBT-friendly churches and take to the streets to show their pride in front of thousands of supporters on Saturday, August 27!
  • Toledo Pride Festival – After the parade on Saturday, August 27 join 15,000-20,000 of your closest friends, food & merchandise vendors, community organizations and more for an amazing day of live entertainment, and so much more!
