2021 Boston Pride events will not be held in-person. Stay tuned for more dates & details.

The 50th edition of the Boston Pride Festival continues as it returns to the Boston Common, for a day of community awareness and political rallying.

With over 120 exhibitors, including a food court, the Festival will feature local and national LGBTQ not-for-profit organizations providing health, growth, education, and diversity services.

Grassroots queer organizations that promote visibility and connections within our community will display their works and invite the public to engage with their mission.

Finally, local queer-owned and operated small business will be selling rainbow merch, so everyone in our community can express their identities gloriously!

Family Fun Zone
The Family Fun Zone, a speciality area for the youngest in our community, returns this year with a selection of activities, including crafts and games.

The New England Zoo will bring an owl for a unique educational and interactive session with kids. Kids can have their faces painted and then strike a pose in the photo booth with fancy costumes donated by the Norwell Company Theater.

The FREE Boston Pride Concert and the Festival Bar traditions will continue as well!

The Festival is rain or shine, from 11am to 6pm.
The Festival Bar is 12pm-7pm. Must be 21+
Boston Pride Concert is from 12pm 6pm

TIPS↑ top

  • Pack appropriately! The Boston Pride Festival is a rain or shine event, so plan accordingly for the forecast weather conditions. Consider bringing sunscreen, plenty of bottled water, and an umbrella or raincoat.

  • Have fun!

  • Watch out for (your) kids. Make sure children are safe at all times. As the crowds pour in from the Parade onto the Festival grounds, it may become difficult to keep an eye on the little ones. Consider moving to the Family Fun Zone until the Parade is complete.

  • Respect the instructions from the Festival Staff and Volunteers. These individuals will be clearly distinguishable from the crowd. They are only doing their job and enforcing safety measures for the benefit of everyone.
