JOIN US – JUNE 2, 2018 NOON to 8PM
After many successful years in the beautiful LGBTQI tourist destination of Guerneville, Sonoma County Pride has realized the potential for growth by locating the Festival and Parade more centrally.
To that end, this year’s events will take place at Old Courthouse Square in downtown Santa Rosa, the heart of Sonoma County with the Parade going down Fourth Street. This new event location will provide improved accessibility for public transit, hotel accommodations, parking and provide an economic boost to Sonoma County as we grow and continue to increase our attendance levels.

This year’s celebration spans three days of events and activities designed to appeal to a large diversity of tastes as well as to invite our neighbors from the entire bay area to join the weekend fun.
Our year’s theme is Together We Rise. The idea behind the theme is to combat hateful rhetoric and policies of the current national political leadership and to stand behind the people of the community who feel threatened by the words and actions of others who have been emboldened by the last election. The event will also embrace people who have been traumatized and dislocated after the recent tragic fires that devastated the county and surrounding areas. The entire event will be about joining together to resist bigotry and discrimination and helping the community to heal and rebuild.
