This October, Milwaukee's famous lakefront festival season comes to a close with PridetoberFest! This entirely volunteer-run festival is the nation's only pride festival held on permanent festival grounds. 

During the two-day event, multiple stages will engage a diverse lineup of entertainment with a particular focus on local acts, performers, and shows. In addition, the festival will welcome popular local food trucks for guests to enjoy.

PridetoberFest makes a commitment to provide a safe space for young adults, providing a dedicated, alcohol-free Youth Area with special activities, contests, and entertainment. During the festival, all of Henry Maier Festival Park’s permanent restrooms are gender neutral.

From music to comedy, drag performances to community discussions, everyone is welcome (and will have a blast!) at PridetoberFest in Milwaukee.

Milwaukee Pride's annual PrideFest festival, originally scheduled for its traditional early June dates, had to be canceled for the second year in a row due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
