Indy Pride Festival

Sponsorship & Marketing

Event Profile

Indy Pride Fest 18, formerly Circle City Indy Pride, is the culmination of two months’ worth of Pride events in Central Indiana, celebrating LBGTQ history and culture. Beginning on May 6 at our Launch Party and Ambassador’s contest, Indy Pride brings together the community in a variety of events focused on LGBTQ Hoosiers.

Indy Pride Fest 18 is a one day event beginning with the Cadillac Barbie Pride Parade that moves to Military Park for a day-long festival of music, food, drinks, and celebration as a community. With music and entertainment on the Main Stage, Indy Mojo Stage, and our Family Fun Zone Stage, over 50,000 attendees will come together as well as over 75 vendors.

For seven years, Indy Pride Fest has been named, “Best Outdoor Festival” by NUVO and recently, Indianapolis was named a top-travel destination by Out Magazine. The festival and parade is the largest gathering of LGBTQ people in Indiana and one of the largest in the Midwest.
