The annual Come Out With Pride festival will be held in person at beautiful Lake Eola Park on Saturday, October 9, 2021. It is scheduled from 12:00 PM until 9:30 PM. After last year’s drive-through event, we can’t wait to see you there and in-person!
Founded in 2005, Come Out With Pride was created to meet the need for a Pride festival that built unity, gave the opportunity for open dialogue within the local
community, and rallied the rest of the country to our side as the Pride Chamber (Central Florida’s LGBTQ+ chamber of commerce) worked to influence Florida legislators to create more inclusive laws.
Since then, Come Out With Pride has become one of the largest Pride festivals in Florida, bringing everyone together for a day of love, support, and alliance for each other and for the community.
Come Out With Pride is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization. That means that this festival is made possible by you and the rest of our local community.
This event creates a space that lets people celebrate who they are, and embrace one another. They are always looking for more volunteers to make Come Out With Pride the amazing event that it is. If you would like to get involved, fill out the volunteer application on the Come Out With Pride website.
This year’s all-day festival will showcase a diverse series of events, including the following:
The Most Colorful Parade is back this year with an even longer parade route, starting on Orange Avenue at Washington Street. This will also be the very first year that Harmony Healthcare Orlando will be participating in the parade, so make sure you look for our float and our staff that will be on the float!
There will be two stages in Lake Eola Park, the Unified By Pride stage and the Amphitheater stage, which will feature live entertainment and celebrity headliners throughout the day.
This vendor area showcases all of the goods and services from organizations that support the LGBTQ+ community in the Central Florida area.
This on-the-ground march will begin with a rally at the Unified By Pride Stage, and close with a march to bring awareness to the rights of trans and non-binary individuals.
There’s no better way to end a perfect day than with the Come Out With Pride 2021 signature fireworks finale over Lake Eola.
Festival and parade admission is free for everyone, but it is recommended that you RSVP in advance to help with crowd control and communication of updates and safety information.
Our team Harmony Healthcare Orlando can’t wait to celebrate and support our local LGBTQ+ community at Come Out With Pride 2021!
