UtAH Pride Jun 2-4
From its humble beginnings in 1974 as an informal gathering in the park, the Utah Pride Festival has come a long way. It is now a major Salt Lake City event that grows bolder and brighter every year. The Festival empowers the LGBTQ+ community of Salt Lake, as well as the state of Utah as a whole, to come together and celebrate. The Festival is now attended by more than 50,000 people and continues to grow each year. In 2016, the Pride Parade attracted 70,000 spectators. A broad spectrum of people can be found at all these events, including members of the LGBTQ+ community, their family members and straight allies who wish to show their support.
