Record-setting sold out Saturday for annual LGBTQ+ Pride celebration in West Hollywood

JUNE 9, WEST HOLLYWOOD: The first day of LA Pride’s two-day annual Festival sold out for the first time ever in its 48-year history.

The day was packed with non-stop entertainment, including an amazing line-up of seriously fierce female performers headlined by R&B sensation Kehlani.  Across all three stages, there was a wide array of LGBTQ+ artists making this the most diverse LA Pride Festival on record.

The festival reached capacity by early evening. Due to the higher than expected turn out, some people who purchased tickets for Saturday were not able to enter the festival grounds. We apologize to everyone who could not get in after the venue hit capacity.

Those with tickets or pre-purchased wristbands for Saturday, that were never scanned at the gate, can exchange an unused Saturday ticket for a free Sunday ticket at the festival box office or can request a refund by emailing See Tickets at [email protected] or calling 323.908.0607.

There are limited festival tickets still available for Sunday. The on-site box office opens at noon. Festivalgoers are encouraged to come early, arriving before 4:00 PM.

Highlights for Sunday include:

  • Annual LA Pride Parade – one of the nation’s largest and most storied Pride celebrations is free and open to the public. Grand Marshal Mendelson, a transgender activist and entrepreneur, will lead a colorful assortment of floats down a 1.5 mile stretch of Santa Monica Boulevard
  • LA Pride Festival’s second day of entertainment featuring a diverse array of artists including Natalia Jiminez, Keke Wyatt, Allie X, Eve, and Tove Lo.

About Christopher Street West (CSW) & LA Pride

Christopher Street West (CSW), a 501(c)3 non-profit, organized the world’s first permitted parade advocating for gay rights on June 28, 1970, as a response to and in commemoration of the Stonewall Rebellion on Christopher Street in New York City the year prior. Since then, we have built a rich history as an active voice for the LGBTQ+ community across the Greater Los Angeles metropolitan area. Today, we continue to produce the globally-recognized LA Pride Parade and Festival every June in the City of West Hollywood. We also organize a number of events throughout the year with our non-profit, philanthropic, community, and corporate partners. Visit for more information.
