Nashville PRIDE Festival
Nashville PRIDE Festival is the largest LGBTQ event in Tennessee. The event brings people together to enjoy an extensive vendor marketplace, Equality Walk, food vendors, entertainment, and much more. The 2021 Nashville Pride Festival and Parade has been moved to Saturday September 18 and Sunday September 19 at Bicentennial Mall State Park. Traditionally held the last weekend of June, the 2021 festival was moved because of the ongoing pandemic.
The festival is expected to draw over 40,000 people and will feature more than 200, three stages with local and national touring acts, kids and family zone, youth area, dance tent, and more.
Full Entertainment Lineup:

The festival will move to Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park in downtown Nashville in 2021. Since 2015 the festival has taken place at Public Square Park. At that location, the festival has grown significantly from averaging 25,000 people to over 75,000 people in 2019.
Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park provides the space for Nashville Pride to grow beyond the current capacity at Public Square Park. Making this move now will allow Nashville Pride a better opportunity to allow for social distancing and safety. In addition to the much-needed space, Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park is more conducive to the secure and accessible festival environment that Nashville Pride strives to provide.
Nashville Pride is proud to announce The Nashville Pride Parade. Over 100 floats, vehicles, bands, walkers and much more will travel down a new route this year, starting 10 A. M., Saturday, September 18th. View more information on the parade here.
The Purpose of Nashville PRIDE is to maintain a sense of community and awareness of, about, and for gay lesbian bisexual transgender people and culture throughout Middle Tennessee. The Nashville Pride Festival is proudly supported in part by Bridgestone, Nissan, Dollar General, AllianceBernstein, Genesco, Journeys, Vanderbilt Health, Philips, Vanderbilt University, First Tennessee Bank, Curb Records, as well as our individual donors and festival vendors.
