Pride has been held in Portland, Oregon since the mid-1970’s. The Portland Pride Waterfront Festival and Parade is one of the largest Pride celebrations on the west coast, and one of the largest donation-based Pride festivals in the country. Each year, tens of thousands of LGBTQ+ and allied people come together, to celebrate, be visible, and to demonstrate the strength of our community. 150+ local, regional, and national organizations, agencies, and businesses fill Waterfront Park, while amazing LGBTQ+ talent provide amazing entertainment throughout the weekend.
The Pride Waterfront Festival is one of the largest donation-based Prides on the west coast, with a suggested donation of $8. No one is turned away from Portland Pride for lack of funds! The Portland Pride Waterfront Festival is possible through the generous support of our community. You can also support keeping Portland Pride accessible to all through our Gay It Forward program.
