Dayton Pride is the Miami Valley’s longest running and largest LGBTQIA celebration. Each year it gets more vendors at the festival, more groups in the parade, more community sponsor support, and most importantly – more of our community coming out to show our colors and spread the love!!
Thousands of gay, lesbian, bisexual, pansexual, asexual, transgender, questioning, and queer folks from all over our region and beyond celebrate at Dayton Pride. Thousands more of our family members, friends, and allies come to celebrate and show support. Dayton Pride has become a powerful three-day event featuring Friday evening’s community entertainment extravaganza followed by the .5k Bar Crawl, Saturday’s parade before the festival on Courthouse Square, and the ‘Spikes & Heels’ kickball tourney on Sunday. Beyond that, the weekend is full of other activities such as the Dayton Gay Men’s Chorus Concert and Dayton PFLAG 5k Run/Walk.
It is easy for you to get involved – check out the page links above for information on how you can join us in the parade, get your act on stage, or secure a vendor booth for the festival.

Each year we rely on generous sponsors to make our event a huge success for the entire Dayton community!!
