ALL ABOUT THE GOLDEN VALLEY PRIDE FESTIVAL
There are many reasons we love Golden Valley: the great parks, community engagement, and its proximity to downtown. But of the best things about living in Golden Valley is that it celebrates LGBTQ people. Did you know? Golden Valley has more LGBTQ households per capita than any city in Minnesota. The Festival will highlight our LGBTQ families, their friends, and allies in the spirit of promoting greater understanding of Golden Valley’s rich and growing diversity. We believe that this will be the first suburban Pride Festival in Minnesota!
