Where does the LA Pride Festival take place?
The LA Pride Festival takes place in West Hollywood Park, along San Vicente Boulevard (between Santa Monica Boulevard and Melrose Avenue), and in the Pacific Design Center Plaza.
The main entrance to the Festival (aka, the “North Gate”) is located at San Vicente and Santa Monica Boulevards. There is a smaller, second entrance (aka, the “South Gate”) located at San Vicente Boulevard and Melrose Avenue. We recommend entering through the “North Gate” to avoid long waits in line.

- Saturday, June 8th: 12pm – 1am
- Sunday, June 9th: 12pm – 11pm
Will there be community programming at the Festival?
In addition to the on-stage performances across the three Festival stages, the LA Pride Festival will host the Trans Galeria (formerly, Trans Station), Erotic City (Leather/S&M), and Sizzle (alcohol- and substance-free) activations again in 2019. There will also be a variety of local vendors, non-profit organizations, and companies exhibiting at the Festival as well as at the free-to-the-public “Pride on the Boulevard” block party taking place on Santa Monica Boulevard (between San Vicente and Robertson) both Saturday and Sunday from 12 pm – 7 pm. Be sure to check everything out!
The LA Pride experience is focused on creating a diverse array of events and programming that the entire LGBTQ+ community and our allies can enjoy. This year, in addition to the annual LA Pride Parade and Festival, we will host a series of events all week long (“Pride Week”). Check out our Events page or Facebook Events for more information.

Our ticketing provider, SeeTickets, can help you with any ticketing related questions. Go to https://support.seetickets.us/hc/en-us.
What is an RFID wristband?
The LA Pride Festival has joined the likes of other festivals around the country by using RFID wristband technology in place of paper or digital tickets. The wristband has encrypted technology that gets scanned whenever entering Festival grounds. As a part of this system, all Festival attendees must wear a wristband on their wrist – and leave it attached – for the days you’ve purchased to attend the Festival. Wristbands that have been removed over the course of the weekend – and consequently destroyed as a result of that action – will no longer be accepted as valid entry into the Festival, thus requiring you to purchase a new ticket.
When will I get my wristband?
If you purchased your tickets online by May 30th, you will receive your wristbands by June 6th at the latest. If you have not received your wristbands by then, please reach out to SeeTickets for assistance: email@example.com.
If you purchased your tickets online after May 30th, you will need to pick them up at the Box Office Will Call (see above). Please be sure to have a photo ID and the credit card used to purchase your tickets on you, so we can verify your identity.
What if I have not received my wristband?
After purchasing your tickets online, you will receive an order confirmation from SeeTickets on behalf of LA Pride. If you did not receive a confirmation email, please reach out to SeeTickets for help: https://support.seetickets.us/hc/en-us.
I got my wristband! Now what?
YAY!! That means you’re going to the LA Pride Festival soon!
Treat your wristband like cash. Each wristband is good for entrance by one person only and is non-transferable. Once you have put on your wristband, DO NOT REMOVE it or attempt to loosen it! Improperly applied wristbands will delay your entrance to the Festival and destroyed wristbands (from attempted removal) will be considered invalid. We will not accept damaged or tampered wristbands as entry into the Festival. If your wristband is removed by Festival security for any reason, it WILL NOT be replaced. Thank you in advance for helping us keep the security lines moving smoothly – and for making the LA Pride experience a safe one for all!
I lost my wristband. What do I do?
Wristbands will not be replaced if lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed. You will need to purchase a new wristband online or at the LA Pride Festival Box Office. For all other questions, please reach out to SeeTickets at firstname.lastname@example.org.
