Pride Events in Portland This Summer 

Jun 2, 2023


While June is still nationally recognized as LGBTQ+ Pride Month, Portland’s pride parade and waterfront festival are moving to July 15–16, for 2023. Queer and trans-BIPOC community members have been asking for this change for many years, as the previous dates in June often overlapped with other cultural events, including Juneteenth and the Delta Park Pow Wow. After years of discussion with the city, Pride Northwest announced in January that they had finally been able to secure alternative dates at the waterfront park. 

Despite the change in festival dates, there are still many pride events happening in Portland and the surrounding area throughout the month of June and stretching into July. Here are a few that staff might be interested in attending: 

June 10: Portland Lesbian Choir Concert
