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.

*You spoke. We listened. No one enjoys standing in long lines to pick up Will Call tickets. That’s why we’ve decided to say goodbye to long lines at Will Call this year! To help people get through security lines faster and into the Festival where they can have a lot more fun, all LA Pride Festival wristbands purchased by May 31, 2018 will be shipped directly to purchasers for a small $5 shipping fee per order. A Will Call option will not be available for Advance tickets. This does not apply to International ticket purchasers (see more details below).
Where can I purchase tickets?
Tickets are available for purchase online or at the Festival Box Office all weekend long. We recommend purchasing your tickets in advance to avoid long lines at the Box Office.
Can I buy my ticket the day of the event?
Single or multi-day tickets can be purchased at the LA Pride Festival Box Office, subject to availability and capacity.
I ordered my tickets online, but have a few questions.

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 31, 2018, you will receive your wristbands in the mail no later than June 4, 2018.
For all international ticket purchases and online tickets purchased after May 31, 2018, your wristbands will be available for Will Call pick-up at the “North Gate” entrance at Santa Monica and San Vicente Boulevards. Please be sure to have a photo ID and the credit card you used to purchase your tickets on you; we must be able to verify your identity in order to provide your wristbands to you.
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 2018 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 2018 LA Pride experience a safe one for all!
