Pride Festival

On Sunday, June 4, The Buffalo Pride Week Festival will return to Canalside! Immediately following the Buffalo Pride Week Parade, join us for this vibrant celebration of WNY’s LGBTQ+ community, featuring community organizations, family-friendly activities, food and drink, retail vendors, and live musical performances and more!

Festival gates open at 1:00p.m. The theme of this year's Festival is "Show up. Turn up." We show up because there's much to fight for. We turn up because there's much to celebrate.

Pride Festival is part of Buffalo Pride Week, and is presented by Evergreen Health and M&T Bank. All sponsorships, donations, and ticket purchases support Buffalo Pride Week and programming at the Pride Center of WNY.

The Evergreen Health Foundation, an affiliate of Evergreen Health, coordinates and manages the Buffalo Pride Parade and Pride Festival as a way to give back to the communities served by Evergreen Health and its affiliate organizations. If you have questions regarding the parade or festival, please email:

Tickets can be purchased here.
