Every year, our event is held in Columbia, which is a central location for Missouri. We are honored to be in a location that makes it easy for our community to attend. The board is comprised of LGTBQ+, allies and friends that are from the Central Missouri area and bring many years of knowledge of our community to the table!
PrideFest has something for everyone! Bring the entire family to enjoy our day time events and attractions! Throughout the day, live performances take the stage, vendors line the streets – ready to share their passion for the community! You’ll find merchants with plenty of LGBT+ wares, activities for the kids, a place for teens to hang out and enjoy the scenery, multiple local food trucks, plenty of libation for adults and refreshments for the kids, a rich presentation of our history and education and support for ALL! Stay throughout the evening for the Drag Showcase! You’ll enjoy wonderful performances by our wonderful, local drag community as well as nationally recognized drag performers!
Festivals like Pride, are an important and integral part our community because it allows us to not only celebrate our identities and the things that make us unique, but it also gives the community an opportunity to show their support to their LGBTQ neighbors, friends, employees, and customers.
In 2017, we officially merged with The Center Project, Mid-Missouri’s LGBTQ+ resource center, in an effort to better impact the community at large. Now, when you sponsor PrideFest, you are not only supporting an incredible, family-friendly festival, but you are also supporting the initiatives of The Center Project.
