Kalamazoo Pride 2018 will take place again on the second weekend in June, Friday, June 8 and Saturday, June 9.
Kalamazoo Pride brings together an estimated 8,000 people of all different ages, genders, sexual orientations, and racial identities from Southwest Michigan and beyond. The festival offers great entertainment, delicious food, and family-friendly activities. As in previous years, Saturday afternoon includes our Vendor Alley, where local businesses and organizations can reserve a space to promote their goods and services.
“Last year’s 10th anniversary Kalamazoo Pride Festival was an enormous success, and we look forward to another fantastic celebration,” says event organizer Margy Belchak.
Kalamazoo Pride is an opportunity to show support for the LGBTQ community of Southwest Michigan. Kalamazoo Pride is OutFront Kalamazoo’s biggest fundraiser and community-building event.
“We wholeheartedly believe that Kalamazoo Pride will offer something for each and every visitor to the Arcadia Creek Festival Place. We’re pleased to host a fantastic and diverse group of entertainers in the Kalamazoo community,” says Jay Maddock, Executive Director, OutFront Kalamazoo.
