Sonoma County Pride dedicates its effort to enhancing the lives and well-being of the LGBTQ+ community and its allies throughout Sonoma County. Since re-organizing in 2014 and relocating our Pride celebrations to Santa Rosa in 2018, SCP has enjoyed significant growth reaching over 6000 attendees in 2019 and continued to reach thousands even during the Covid pandemic. In Partnership with local Hotels, Restaurants, Businesses, City and County agencies, SCP has been able to broaden its market reach, attracting visitors from all regional markets such as San Jose, Sacramento, Oakland, and San Francisco, producing one of the largest public gatherings in Sonoma County.
Working with community leaders, we support the non-profit community and strive to preserve and educate the community about the rich LGBTQ+ history in Sonoma County.
Pride365, Awards & Accolades
Beyond its Pride celebrations in June, SCP contributes its time and resources to collaborate with a variety of local underrepresented groups year-round. Your support contributes to SCP’s ability to become a critical resource and communication tool for many of these groups. SCP works actively to nurture and support small and new Non-Profits that do great work providing essential services to many minority and marginalized members of our community.
Sonoma County Pride has been named the “Best LGBTQ Event of the North Bay” by the Bohemian for three consecutive years. In 2019 SCP was the recipient of the City of Santa Rosa’s Merit Award for “creating an atmosphere of inclusion and greater visibility for all LGBTQI+ community members”.
