THANKS FOR MAKING THE 2ND ANNUAL GOLDEN VALLEY PRIDE FESTIVAL A SUCCESS!

WHAT IS THE GOLDEN VALLEY PRIDE FESTIVAL?

The 2017 Golden Valley Pride Festival was on June 11, 2017 at Brookview Park. The Golden Valley Pride Festival is a celebration of Golden Valley LGBTQ individuals, families, and friends. The event is planned and run by a group of volunteer Golden Valley residents. All are welcome. We'll hope you'll celebrate with us!

ACTIVITIES FOR EVERYONE

The Golden Valley Pride Festival has activities for the whole family, including a bouncy house, community booths, the Golden Valley Puppet Wagon, Glitter Ink Tattoos, a Pride Run, Brookview Playground, and pet activities!

FANTASTIC MUSIC

We had fantastic musical performances throughout the day, including OutLoud! from the Twin Cities Gay Men’s Chorus, Looney Lutherans, Dirty Shorts Brass Band & Erin Schwab and Jay Fuchs!

LAVENDER Beer Garden

In 2017, the Lavender Magazine Beer Garden had a tap lineup from our neighbors at Utepils Brewing Co. Look for their Pils, Alt 1848, and Glocal IPA.

ALL ABOUT THE GOLDEN VALLEY PRIDE FESTIVAL

The Golden Valley Pride Festival is a celebration of Golden Valley LGBTQ individuals, families, and friends. The event is planned and run by a group of volunteer Golden Valley residents. All are welcome. We'll hope you'll celebrate with us!
Celebrating community, family, and friends.

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!
